We're looking for feature pitches as we move to increase our culture and lifestyle reporting. That includes interesting profiles of people, groups, and businesses, first-person essays, cultural commentary pieces, useful listicles, trend coverage, etc. We love hyperlocal stories, but anything Houstonians and Texans are interested in goes. Send pitches to sarah.sarder@chron.com  and include a link to your portfolio or published clips. Rates are negotiable but expect 50 cents per word.
