Looking for some free professional development? Recently, New York Times Magazine culture editor Adam Sternbergh shared tips on Twitter about how to be a better freelance writer.

His advice is humorous and useful. Here’s one tip: keep your pitches short. Sternbergh will read a “one-paragraph pitch as soon as I open it, and likely decide then. Three or more paragraphs I always ‘file’ for ‘later.’”

If you’ve ever had questions about reminder emails, deadlines, or client response time, check out Sternbergh’s tips.
