What To Pitch Now: April 2018

Can you believe it’s April? I feel like just the other day I was celebrating a fresh new year. Now it’s spring, but here in NJ it doesn’t feel like it. We just got over a snow storm on the first day of spring, actually. But that’s not stopping me from attempting my hand as a green thumb. I’m trying to grow some plants here!

Do you know what you’re pitching yet?

I guess that’s what I’m here for. For short lead press you should be thinking about May and June, and some April still. For long lead, they are now working on July and August issues.

Pitch angle ideas:

  • Mother’s Day gift guides

  • Father’s Day gift guides

  • Graduation gifts

  • April 22 - Earth Day

  • April 30 - May6 National Gardening Week

  • 4th of July all-American themes

  • Spring and summer steals

  • Summer-proof beauty products and tips

  • Beach reads

  • Summer weddings

  • Road trips

  • May is National Walking Month

  • Cinco De Mayo

Do a little research on fun awareness days. There are so many out there!
