So, you want to write for magazines and blogs?
I did too, when I started I didn’t have a clue, contact or idea how to get started. I had desire, determination and a dream. I spent the year pitching, receiving rejections, and honing my craft. One thing I didn’t do was give up.
Here are some tips I learned along the way that has helped me and my clients get published in magazines and blogs.
See the tips below.
👉🏽 Study the publication or blog. Read and study the style of writing, sections, and columns.
👉🏽 If you are just starting out find your niche. Focus on that one, and add on more topics so you have a nice variety of clips. If you know you want to focus on one area, study, write, and get good at that one topic and stand out.
👉🏽 Research publications that you want to write for. Find their guidelines and follow directions.
👉🏽 Pitch and follow up. Editors are busy give it a week and follow up.
👉🏽 Keep trying and don’t take rejection personal.
I hope these tips helped. Happy pitching and writing.
