Thanks so much for this. I am definitely going to pitch some really good profiles to Jessica. I have a really interesting idea about a key thinker, well known in the US, who was my English teacher. Also food stories that tell you a bigger story about a phenomenon or moment in time to her colleague Summer. Both right up my street.

So glad to hear it! I find the best inspiration I have when pitching profiles is reading other ones. Taffy Brodesser-Akner's profile on Tonya Harding is one of my all-time favourites: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/10/movies/tonya-harding-i-tonya-nancy-kerrigan-scandal.html

Thanks, will definitely read this for inspiration. Did you know that I run food writing courses. Next 21 Sept in Bermondsey. www.sudifoodie.com has all the details.
