The mother-daugher duo behind Brown Parcel Press, a letterpress company based in Sparta, Georgia, were featured in the New York Times’ T magazine online this week (and written and photographed by friend and super talent, Rinne Allen). Megan Fowler and her mother, Gaelle Boling, attended our very first Pitch Lab in Atlanta two summers ago and we couldn’t be happier for the talented team. Congratulations!
We recently donated copies of the Recipe for Press book to the vendors of ICE Atlanta’s Holiday Shopping Spectacular. Here’s talented maker Angelyn Pass of Glak Love holding her copy at the market this weekend
This holiday season, we’re looking to give away more books to a creative group or company that could truly benefit from Amy’s wealth of knowledge on pitching the perfect story and building industry relationships that last.
For a chance to win 5 copies of our Recipe For Press book, enter the giveaway by sharing our photo on Instagram. Don’t forget to make sure your profile is public, use the hashtag #rfpgiveaway and tag @amyflurry in your caption!
Who They Are: Published every other month, Oh Comely is a modern lifestyle magazine that includes recipes, DIY tutorials, and stories to inspire and warm the hearts of their readers.
Why We’re Fans: Oh Comely promotes curiosity, creativity, and kindness. Their latest issue focuses on the quiet stories that pass us by every day. Through their words, photographs, and illustrations, they encourage us to pause and find beauty in the small joys of life.
Pitch Tip: Think your story, photography, or other creative work would fit nicely in an Oh Comely issue? Take a look at their submissions page to find out which editor to email.
We know that editors are constantly scouting Instagram, so we’ve been doing the same! Our latest obsession is Bunch Magazine, a limited print publication focusing on the biggest dreamers and go-getters of various creative communities. They lift our spirits every Monday with a great motivational quote and regularly share round-ups of their favorite creative companies. And we love that they feature their followers’ photographs using #oneofthebunch.
Q: With the holidays quickly approaching, what is an appropriate way to thanks editors for all of their support? There are a handful of people that are always so generous with their time & consideration, but I know a lot of publications don’t allow their staff to accept gifts.
A: It would be a wonderful gesture for you to send a small thank-you gift to an editor this time of year! Just be aware that accepting doesn’t guarantee any kind of placement in the publication. As long as the sentiment is genuine and not positioned as a pitch, a gift is appropriate and the gesture much appreciated.
