Storytelling and information sharing are what the NaturallyCurly community was built on, way back in 1998. Frustrated by the lack of information on curly hair and the limited products available in the marketplace, two journalists from the Austin American-Statesman, Michelle Breyer and Gretchen Heber, started NaturallyCurly to empower other women who shared the same frustrations by sharing the information that mainstream media was missing. They've done that with input from cosmetic chemists, stylists, writers, social influencers and community members.  

If you have a touching story or useful tips to share with our community then we want to hear from you! Your stories have made NaturallyCurly what it is today.   Here's how to share your pitch with us. 

Dos & Don'ts of Pitching Your Story

DO use our pitch form.

It contains all of the information that you would need to be chosen, so be sure to fill out all of the fields if possible for your best chance of being published.

DO check the NaturallyCurly website first.

We’ve been around for 18 years, and we’ve published a lot of content! Please check NaturallyCurly first to see if we have published a similar article already before pitching “9 Best Moisturizers for Transitioners.” (Hint, we have published that one).

DO present a fresh angle.

The amazing thing about curly hair is that one size does not fit all! We've published “9 Best Moisturizers for Transitioners,” but do you have a fresh angle on this topic that will make your article stand out? If you have a unique perspective that will help our readers in ways we haven't yet addressed then we definitely want to hear it.

DO provide links to your work.

If you've been published by other major publications or blogs, share your work with us! We'd love to get to know your voice and your breadth of knowledge better.

DO send a full draft of the article if you have it.

This will ultimately give you the best chance of having your article published.

DON’T email your pitch to our editors.

Please use the form to submit your pitches, that way we can keep all of the pitches organized and accessible when we need to brainstorm and plan our articles for the month. If you email us there is a greater chance that your pitch will be missed.

DON’T pitch an article that has been published or pitched to another site.

We only publish exclusive content that has not been published anywhere else. If you've already published the piece on your blog or pitched it to another site then we won't be able to publish it.

We can't wait to read your pitch!
