To Pitch Our Editorial Board

Our Editorial Board welcomes story pitches from professional and freelance writers, journalists, columnists, and authors on all topics, whether it is a book review, hard news journalism, a feature article, or an op-ed. All submissions must be exclusive. Please keep your story pitch between 200 and 500 words. Send an email to editorial@lareviewofbooks.org. Your pitch will be forwarded to the appropriate editor.

Due to the volume of pitches we receive daily, we can only respond to those we accept.

To Pitch Our Fiction Board

If your pitch is related to a fiction review, please make sure to include the following information at the top of your pitch:

*Book(s) and/or writer(s) you would like to discuss in your piece
*Approximate word count
*Your bio
*Two relevant writing samples

If necessary, briefly explain any critical, historical, or biographical context you consider relevant. If there is an ongoing critical conversation (i.e., the work has been reviewed or written about already), let us know how your piece will take those conversations into account. Please keep in mind that the Los Angeles Review of Books has a broad general audience. Send an email to fiction@lareviewofbooks.org.

LARB’s Pay Policy

The Los Angeles Review of Books is dedicated to reversing the trend in which writers write on the internet for free. We offer a standard honorarium based on the current health of our Writer’s Fund, for which we are raising money on an ongoing basis. We are a small nonprofit in the first years of our life, and the labor that goes into publishing on our various platforms — not just writing, but editorial, managerial, technical, educational, and otherwise — is still largely volunteer. Our ability to pay is contingent on available funds, which changes depending on the generosity of the organizations, businesses, individual donors and grant-writing institutions that help make LARB possible. We try to concentrate those funds on freelance writers and journalists for whom the money matters most, and encourage those writers in a position to do so, to waive the standard honorarium and donate it back to LARB to help us build the institution. Our #1 priority is to sustain for our writers and readers alike a home for the best that is thought and written on culture and the literary arts. We are building that capacity every day, and are determined to continue to be part of the solution. We appreciate the generosity of everyone who has helped bring us this far.

– A description of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of alleged infringed copyrighted works.

– Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, including a link or description of where the claimed infringing content is located on our website so that we are capable of finding and verifying its existence.

– Contact information, including identification of the copyright owner, your name, address, telephone number and email address.

– A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law.
