Five Things I Learned about Writing for Magazines (My Series for March 22-26)


All writers have made rookies mistakes when writing magazine queries and magazine articles. In fact, I still make my fair share of mistakes from missing an error in my query after reading it over 30 times or misunderstanding the niche of a magazine I queried.

It can be embarrassing to make mistakes when writing for magazines and deflating to see your hard won idea tossed into the rubbish bin. I confess I still am on a bit of a learning curve when it comes to writing for certain magazines.

However, after a few years in the world of writing and querying magazines, I’ll share a few lessons next week that should help anyone improve his/her chances of being published in a magazine. Some may seem obvious but hard to put into practice, and others may open up a world of possibilities for you.

Stay tuned for the start of this series on Monday, March 22nd.
