What is Missed Pitches?

Missed Pitches is a home for rejected story ideas.

Every Friday I send you a fresh batch of creative and amazing (but rejected) story ideas that have yet to find a publication.

🖥️ If you’re an editor looking for content, this is the perfect newsletter for you to find writers and story ideas. Each story ideas (3-4 graphs) come with the writer’s name, email and a link to their work.

📝 If you’re a writer who has a few story ideas in the “rejected” bin, this is the perfect place to expose them to a list of editors and publications reading this newsletter. Submit your rejected pitches using this Google Form.

Give me a follow on Twitter at @MissedPitches for updates and shout-outs. Support this newsletter; buy me a cup of coffee!
