From the Yes! guidelines:

The best pitches indicate the sources of information you intend to use. A working headline helps, and, if your story is timely, give us a news hook. Include your credentials. Why are you the one who should write this article?

If you’re pitching a reported solutions piece, please include this information:

  • What is the premise of the solution?
  • What systemic societal problem does it address?
  • In what way do advocates think this solution can lead to greater social justice?
  • What movements or groups will this involve?
  • Is there research/data or independent sources that give this solution credibility?
  • What are the arguments against it, and what are its shortcomings or limitations?
  • What is the story you will tell, the people or community you will highlight, to illustrate this solution?
  • Are other communities doing this also, or interested in doing this?
  • Was there community leadership around this initiative—how did it get going?
  • What’s next for the project?
  • What impact could a story like this have. That is, who would most benefit from this article?
  • How many words will the article be?
  • Working headline?
