Pitching a story to QuadAngles

QuadAngles is a great way to get exposure for what’s going on in your department. 

QuadAngles reaches 120,000 households, in every state and many countries, but with a primary concentration in Rhode Island (42 percent) and up and down the Eastern Seaboard. It is the University’s biggest single publication and a primary engagement tool.

What we’re looking for

  • Interesting stories from you about URI faculty, students and alumni that appeal to a broad audience, from quick profiles to longer issue stories
  • Stories with a great personal angle or that combine the potential for good storytelling with a continuing education component
  • Ideas with the potential to feature broad faculty and/or alumni expertise, especially around subjects of high societal interest
  • Shorter hits, from infographics to stand-alone photographs to bulleted text, that feature unusual or quirky corners of academia or society, or convey useful and little-known information

Time to publication

The magazine has a long production cycle. Features typically need a minimum of six months for development and are reviewed by an editorial board; shorter stories need 8-to-10 weeks.

Writers wanted

We’re always looking for writers, both staff and faculty, so let us know if you’d like to write something, or if you know of a professor or staff expert who is publishing interesting work and might contribute their voice to the magazine.

To pitch: Send no more than six sentences describing your idea’s appeal to pjack@uri.edu.

Pitch early and pitch often!
