Who They Are: Gather Journal is a recipe magazine created from “a shared love of food and cooking, and a desire to create a magazine with staying power on your bookshelf; one that you could return to again and again for inspiration.”
Why We’re Fans: Recently featured in Vogue as part of the “Great Indie Magazine Explosion”, Gather is a great example of the natural, minimalistic format we’re loving right now. Plus, their recipes and photography leave our mouths watering! We think their emphasis on the experience of the gather sets them apart from other recipe publications.
Pitch Tip: Send your pitch to their editor, Fiorella Valdesolo (firstname.lastname@example.org), featuring your unique gathering space or a recipe you think they’d love.
Hip, hip, hurrah for our friend Sally King Benedict on landing a cover story and feature in Domino Magazine! What a beautiful glimpse into the life of one of our favorite and most vibrant artists. Way to go Sally!

Instagram is the new social media of choice for editors – it’s a great tool for finding new talent and products. So, we’re on the hunt for Instagram accounts with great aesthetics and influence. First up is Clementine Daily, an online publication “for real women living authentic-sometimes-frenzied-often-harried-but-always-inspired lives.” We love the inspirational (but never cliché) quotes they share and their pictures of all things style, beauty, home, food, and health.
