Sharp Cutting Thing
So I have an environmental-justice story I pitched to (quelle surprise) an environmental-justice rag. The publisher liked it but couldn't run it. I immediately repitched it to an urban-policy one -- like literally carbon copied the same pitch -- and the editor there likes it, too. The problem is that the story's a bit of a square peg for that round hole. I fell asleep last night thinking about how to angle it, and I'm still not particularly sure. Hm. I should ask the guy I'm interviewing whether he has any wisdom for me.
