We love sharing stories [articles] about New York City [NYC]. that inspire and empower #HER. The Woman who is [Re]Discovering herself. As she Elevates and Designs a Life Well-Lived, SHE becomes HER HERO.

We love real stories authentically shared in a real, uplifting, positive, and encouraging way.

Let us talk about the best of NYC in the form of stories. We love stories based on personal experiences because we believe we can all learn and become inspired by the experiences of others. Tell us stories that excite us; share your experience, but tell us why we should care.

Each month’s Topics focus on Beauty + Wellness, the best Restaurants to visit, and Events to attend. In addition, we feature our favorite Black-Owned businesses, Art, Culture, Food, and Wine.


First-time contributors, please note:

  1. We prefer complete drafts on the first pitch. It gives us an idea of your writing style and ability to build a readable narrative.
  2. A length of 500 to 700 words for editorial pitches and 700 to 1200 words for personal essays is a nice balance.
  3. The first piece is on a trial basis. It allows us to see how well your writing connects with our audience before we bring you on as a regular contributor.
  4. The proposed title should be in the subject line. Keep it catchy and striking. Check out our current content to understand how we structure headlines.
  5. Always include writing samples. We would love to see your versatility.
