Step One—Start Here
Writing for Magazines
Everything you need to know from concept through to submission
Perhaps you’re like so many new authors having never considered the golden nugget of the publishing world—the magazine market!
I’m afraid I’m not good enough to write for magazines—I’ve never been published.
Most new writers are full of great intentions, but don’t have the foggiest idea of where to start, what to do next, how to submit, and lack confidence—so you are not alone!
I did it and so can you!
I’ve been exactly where you are right now!
I have been unsettled with every aspect of the writing process and in need of feedback. I know what it feels like to sit alone at a computer with the highest aspirations of becoming a published writer. It took years of study, tutorials, writing programs, and trial-and-error before I broke the code and got my first publishing contract.
My corridor into the publishing world came through the magazine market.
Every article I submitted was accepted except for one (the magazine changed their publishing direction), and another publisher bought the article.
I struggled, and that’s why I am excited to share my secrets with you.
But where to start?
Start with the magazine market
The magazine market is the best way to hone your writing skills.
The average length for a magazine article is between 500-1500 words. Unlike short stories and novels, nonfiction magazine articles don’t require character development, plot, or a story arc. Nonfiction magazine articles are short and focused, so there isn’t time to get stuck in a rabbit hole or lost in a plot.
The magazine market requires fresh material on a regular revolving basis.
This means that magazine publishers are always looking for articles. It also means that they are willing to take a look at new unpublished talent.
Are you a new author desperately seeking validation as a writer?
How would it feel to have that line or two at the bottom of a cover letter with the where and when you’ve been published?
How would you like to earn a little extra income?
Some magazines pay up to $500 per article. Think about it! In just one submission, you’ll have the possibility of an immediate return on your investment. It’s pretty incredible.
As a published author, you’ll be able to:
See your name in print
Share your knowledge as an expert
Build credibility and audience
Create income while making an impact
But how do you become a better writer without direction or feedback?
Have you been caught in the cycle of dead-ended writing tutorials and free offers for the insider secret of how-to-write only to find you’re right back where you started?
