HuffPost Email Directory By Section

jaws4242Tips & Tricks21 Comments

If you are looking to pitch/submit to HuffPost, and you are not yet a HuffPost blogger, emailing a section directly with your submission is often your best bet. When I was unable to find a central source for this info, I decided to compile this list of section emails from publicly available information (mostly from HuffPost section pages, Twitter and Facebook posts, and social media About/Description pages).  I’ve also included Facebook and Twitter pages for each section where applicable.  I encourage you to watch social media feeds for those sections that interest you to see calls for submissions that may go out from time to time.

Since editors change from time to time, check the Editorial Staff List maintained by Huffington Post for specific editor names. If an email doesn’t work, let us know and we can try to see if there is something more current available.  Please also note that HuffPost does offer a blog pitch form you can use to pitch content and ideas, however many bloggers and writers I have heard from, have had much better response via email.

HuffPost Email Directory By Section

A podcast interview I did with former HuffPost Parents Editor Emma Mustich suggested email pitches/submissions include everything you think the editor will need to reduce any potential back and forth including: your short bio, the text of your post in an email (not an attachment), a link to where it has already been published (if applicable), any relevant photos, your headshot and social media links.

  1. Susan, thank you for this! Beyond Your Blog is the most amazing resource for bloggers, and I am so grateful for all the information you curate and share. And for the clear, easy way you share it. Did I say thank you? Thank you! 🙂

  3. Greetings, Susan
    Thanks for being so generous in sharing this info. I tried submitting something to the Comedy section, using HP’s online form, with no response. I’ve a new humor book out (I’m the author of 180+ books) WOMEN WHO STILL LOVE CATS TOO MUCH, with illustrations by Sylvia cartoonist, Nicole Hollander, and have written a piece about why women love cats too much. I have two questions: 1. I checked the Editorial Staff listing above, but found no one for Comedy. Would you still advise, as you mentioned before, emailing Adriana Huffington directly as the best way to submit? 2. I had a radio interview about the book that’s pretty funny. Do you advise me sending her that in the email as well? Thanks so much for your time. I realize you’re busier than an ant at a picnic and am grateful.

    1. The editor for comedy is Andy Mcdonald – on Twitter he is: ; the best email I have for comedy is comedytips(at)huffingtonpost(dot)com — That should get to an editor. I’d try the editor/section before I’d try Arianna.

      Once you get your first piece published (on any section of HuffPost), you will get ‘backstage’ access where you can submit directly any time – most of them get published, though promotion varies (some don’t get any eyeballs on them because they are not promoted by Huffpost or visible on the section page).

      Keep in mind that you can get published in any section and become a HuffPot blogger with backstage access to submit to any section, so if you are not getting traction with Comedy, try submitting a funny piece to Huffpost parents etc. Once you get backstage access you will be able to submit to comedy. I have had pieces published there myself.

      1. Susan, thanks for getting back so quickly. And thanks a gazillion million trillion for the info. To be clear, what you’re saying is, you can submit a humorous piece to any section and thereafter become a Huffpost blogger, with direct access. So, humorous pieces aren’t exclusive to Comedy. So, for example, if I had a valentine’s day piece on love (funny, not mushy), I could submit to the Love editor, and if he/she publishes it, I’d be on the inside? Wow, thanks so much. This has been so helpful. lllllllllllllllllzk (Sorry, my cat just walked across the keyboard.) You’re the best and so very generous for sharing. Many don’t. Stay blessed.

        1. That is exactly what I am saying. Once you get ‘back stage’ access (after you have had one accepted in any section), you will post your submissions directly into their system and can select the section. They still have the ultimate decision on which section it goes to, but you get the idea. Good luck!

  4. This is fantastic! I just submitted something via the general submission form, but I would like to follow up via email in a couple days. Do you have a similar list for Washington Post?

    1. Thank you! I don’t have a WashPo list (other than Solo-ish and On Parenting whose editors I have interviewed). They are moving all freelance work through the Talent Network now, so you can apply there and if you get accepted, you’ll be able to pitch any section:

  5. One more thing: if you’re not certain which section to pitch, say, for example, the piece could really go in love, women, comedy….should you pitch them all at the same time? Or should you wait until you hear (or don’t hear) from one section before pitching the other? Thanks so much for any info you can give me on this.

    1. People probably do it all the time with a place like HuffPost, and it probably won’t get you in too much trouble there like it would most other places. If it were me, I’d probably do 1 a week for 3 weeks starting with the section I thought was the best fit.

      1. I agree completely. One at a time. I sent to one section today, and will wait. Again, thanks so much. Oh, do they email you if they want it? I sent something in once to the NYT Connecticut section a long time ago, and they just printed it and I never knew until someone called me up to congratulate me.

        1. In my experience, they always let you know. You’ll become a HuffPost Blogger and they will get you access to the system where you can submit future posts for consideration. They may even have you put the one they want into the system yourself.

  7. Hi Susan! Thank you for this information. I have a question. I received backstage access for the Huffington Post blogger forum and have posted two posts on there. However, I would like to submit to HuffPost Parents. Should I do an email submission to the editor of the HuffPost Parents section and inform that I am a contributing blogger; however I would like to submit this certain piece to the HuffPost Parent site?
    Thank you for your help.

    1. If you have backstage access, when you put your post in, right under the ‘blog post’ and ‘tags’ fields you will see a drop down labeled vertical. Select ‘Parents’ there and that should direct it to that editorial team. That said, sometimes I have had it redirected from there to another section, but that is what I would try.

  8. I am trying to get someone from the Parents section to respond to my e-mails, no luck so far 🙁
    I would love to become a contributor, have applied via their form online but have heard nothing back.
    Could you send me a name by any chance? Thanks this blog post is super useful!

  9. Hello Susan…
    I was wondering if you could give me the best contact & email for submissions in the Women’s section?
    I am so glad I found your page! You are a wonderful resource for bloggers.
    Thank You!
