We can share your stories on Salty.

Please read our guidelines carefully before submitting.

Update March 2024: Submissions are currently open, and accepted through the form below.

Pitches We Love to See:

  • First person essays that are authentic to you: Write from your own lived experiences.
  • Topics: Dating, sex and relationships.
  • Tone: It’s 2024. We’re exhausted. We could all use a good laugh. We encourage your voice to be irreverent, funny, self deprecating- whatever your vibe is. But be smart too. We know you’re a smartie.
  • Timeless: We only accept evergreen pitches that remain relevant regardless of season or time-frame.
  • Important: Salty does not employ staff writers –  that means we can’t write up coverage on anything for you. 

Pitches We Don’t Love to See:

  • Poetry
  • Pitches promoting yourself or someone else, upcoming events, music, books, TV shows, people or films.
  • Reviews or recaps of TV shows, films or books
  • No explicit re-tellings of traumatic events
  • Event or fashion coverage
  • News or timely content
  • Interviews or Q&As
  • Stories that have been published online elsewhere
  • Pitches from cis men

We encourage you to pitch more than once! If your pitch is approved, please understand that it may take weeks or months to get your piece into the editorial schedule because we have a very small, part time team. We have top editors available to help refine final submitted pieces, if necessary. In the Salty spirit of authenticity, we do our best to assign top editors to articles written by authors of similar lived experiences.

While we are a small platform with an engaged following, we do not have the funding to pay contributors for publication on Salty. In fact, we still do not have the funding to cover a majority of our overheads costs. (Become a member and help us survive!) We understand this may be a deal breaker for you. If not, and your pitch is approved, your story will be shared on our beautiful platforms and with the Salty community. The Salty newsletter goes out to 50,000 people! We think that’s pretty special.
