We do not publish original reviews. Our mission is to summarize existing reviews from major newspapers and magazines. (In our opinion, the last thing the world needs ... is another opinion). We are relatively structured with our content, and we seldom consider pitches that fall outside that structure. We focus on the following types of content: Consensus-oriented book reviews. These reviews are the heart of the magazine and typically where most writers start working with us. You may see an example here. Once a book is assigned, the writer reads the relevant published book reviews from major newspapers and magazines. The final piece consists of a brief plot or content summary, a critic quote and rating applied to the book from each review (as determined by the writer), and a "critical summary" in which the critics reviews are highlighted, discussed and reconciled. "What One Book" is a column where we solicit advice from a panel of experts on the best books on a particular topic. If you have access to authorities in a particular field, we would be interested in proposals on those topics. Classic Author or Genre "Book by Book" profiles. These are our most complex pieces, and we typically work with writers we know well or who have considerable experience. Our 3,500 word profiles provide a concise review of work by a renowned author or within a genre (biographies, history, graphic novels).
