Question; how many model pitches to magazines start out with something like the following:

I am so and so or I have done this and that or my blah or my blah blah.

Would it be safe to assume that 99.9% of model pitches focus solely on the person sending it and thus are just “me me me”?

What if, instead, your pitch wasn’t about you at all?

What if it were just on a topic of importance you could write about?

Something interesting, something newsworthy, something entertaining. That is tremendously more valuable to a magazine editor or writer than requested a feature selfishly just about you.

Just a thought on something different to try. Might be a great way to start a relationship with a magazine that could lead to something else down the road. Give it some thought.
