Essays for Marie Claire

Info garnered and condensed from a profile of Marie Claire on MediaBistro:
A good section for freelancers to pitch is "Bulletin," which the magazine describes as "a news section with attitude."
If you're willing to share your personal details, the "Love/Sex" section is supposed to "enlighten and amuse readers" with narratives about women's emotional lives. Two examples: a piece about a two-year online love affair, where the writer never met the guy face-to-face; how a woman came to grips with her boyfriend's huge, lurid tattoo.
For long-form features, concentrate on having a news angle.
