    I have a freelance idea I'd like to pitch to Sports Illustrated. Anyone know the best contact there for such items?

    This thread was a wonderful demonstration of boxing skill and a barbarous display of cruelty.

    No one can be helpful?

    SI only has 49,039 names on its masthead.

    Exactly. Just wondering if anyone here knew who the best one was to contact.

    I'd try the Writers Market books, if those don't help you may just have to pick an editor's name and fire away.

    There's a few hundred folks on this site that would love to be published in SI (me included), so you can probably understand why you might not get a direct (good) answer. Journos can be sneaky like that.

    Steve Wulf's wife, Jane, used to be chief of reporters there, could be something if that's still the case.

    Hmm....they all want to be published....so they don't help other folks get published....sneaky indeed.
  11. You might want to start smaller than SI.

    She's long gone. Richard Demak is in that job now, and he'd be a good person to direct a query to. But keep in mind, Sneed, that with the exception of book excerpts and the occasional piece by a high-profile writer, virtually all of SI's content is staff-produced.
