Plus Size Women, We Want To Hear From You!

Plus Size Women, We Want To Hear From You!

Everyday my inbox is inundated with hundreds of press releases and article pitches from corporations but that’s not who I want to hear from. I want to hear from you.

When our wonderful Oz (Valery Amador) created Venus Diva Magazine many, many years ago, it was a monthly online magazine. We featured new products, new designers, interviews and so much more but because it was published once a month, there wasn’t a need for a continuous stream of content.

Here is one of those old Venus Diva Magazine covers:

We still publish a monthly cover but so much has changed since those days.

Since 2009, we’ve been a daily website with an amazing team of writers. We’ve made some great strides, but everyday I find myself thinking, “something is missing.” That missing piece is you!

Our goal is to inspire, celebrate, motivate and educate plus size women. The best way to achieve that goal is to understand what it means to be a plus size woman in today’s society.

No writing experience? No worries.

If you have something to get off your chest, there’s a place for you at If your pissed off about something, there’s a place for you here.

The great thing about is that we’re a lifestyle website so there’s not much that we won’t accept. If the goal is to learn from each other, how can we do that if we don’t hear from you.

Articles about plus size celebrities, plus size news, shopping experiences, designer spotlights, fashion tips, plus size fashion trends, and more!

Send your pitches to me at [email protected]. In the subject line put {DVD Pitch}. Here are few things to remember:

  • Voice-  How you speak to your reader is up to you.  You can be as creative as you want.  Imagine that you’re talking to your best friend.  Personalize your writing; inject your life into your writing. Search for a sense of place or a narrative. If it appeals to you then it will appeal to our readers.
  • Images-  You are painting a picture for the reader so send any photos that you want to use when you send your article.
  • Submission Format-  Email submissions are preferred. You can type the article in the body of the email. If you post the article to the website please send me the article via email also. Attach any photos to the email you send me. If you submit directly to the website, please email me the same article with attached photos to [email protected] as well.

Go ahead, send us a pitch and see your words get published. Don’t be nervous, start writing and send us your ideas. We can’t wait to hear from you.
