Hi Hassan Ud-deen! :) Yes, curation works exactly how you described it: You need to wait for curators to see & validate if your piece is a fit or not. You can’t really pitch to curators but you can pitch to the Medium owned publications such as Forge, Human Parts, etc.
Do you have any more questions? I actually think of writing a guideline with everything I know about curation as many people have questions regarding it. So, if there’s anything specific you’d like to know, don’t hesitate to reach out :)
If you want, you can join my free newsletter, there I only share Medium-related lessons. Additionally, I also have a mastermind group with free live trainings starting this week on how to successfully write on Medium :)
All the best!
