From the DRAFT guidelines:

DRAFT prides itself on providing its audience with current, accurate and creative coverage of beer and other areas of life enjoyed by our readers, and we’re delighted you’re interested in contributing.

DRAFT does not accept pre-written stories of any kind. Writers interested in contributing to DRAFT must submit a formal pitch/query, and all freelance work must be pitched to, accepted and assigned by a DRAFT editor.

Though many pitches have merit, DRAFT can only assign and publish the most tightly focused, error-free queries that meet our needs and guidelines. Pitches need not be beer-centric, but those that are should focus on beer/brewery news, trends and ideas, rather than the technical aspects of brewing and/or profiles. Aside from beer, we happily accept pitches on topics ranging from food, sports (both professional and leisure), travel, and many other topics. Whatever the focus, it must appeal to DRAFT’s audience, and should cover a new idea or story, or provide a unique angle on a topic that’s already received media attention.
