The Mix - Get Published By Hearst Digital - Cosmo, Good Housekeeping, Redbook & More! - Beyond Your Blog Podcast 57 interview with The Mix Director of Contributor Recruitment Mike Barish

**UPDATE: The Mix ceased operations in summer 2016. Pitches for Hearst Digital publications should now be submitted to each publication individually**

This is the golden ticket of podcast guests for me! I had a great discussion with Director of Contributor Recruitment at The Mix, that answers all of your questions about getting published on Hearst Digital’s 18 different websites. Whether you have aspirations of being published on the websites for Redbook, Elle, Marie Claire, Woman’s Day, Bazaar, Cosmopolitan or the other 12 magazine sites served by The Mix, this interview will have you taking notes and hopefully applying to their network! You may then find yourself refreshing your email repeatedly to see if you get an acceptance so you can start pitching their daily assignment prompts…but lets not get ahead of ourselves.

I ask Mike all the questions that I’ve been hearing from listeners about this coveted network, and he delivers everything you need to know!
