Submission Guidelines

We invite writers and artists to submit pitches and work to be considered for publication. Please send pitches to the news editor at with the subject “News pitch.”

Journalism pitches should be written in the body of your email. A successful pitch will provide a description of your subject, evidence of original research and intended approach and intended format, and your credentials. Samples of previous work should be provided as attachments (.doc, .docx, or .rtf for text and .jpg for photos and illustrations) or web links.

Please note:
  • CMAJ News receives frequent submissions. Please allow us a few days to respond to your query before following up.
  • CMAJ News does not accept simultaneous submissions.
  • Before sending a pitch, make sure you are familiar with the breadth and style of content at CMAJ News, and confirm that your story idea isn’t one that has already been covered by CMAJ News and that it concerns a topic relevant to a Canadian audience.
