Thanks to the invention of the Internet, the op-portunity to write for magazines is almost endless. With over 9,000 magazines published yearly, in addition to those online, the world is your oyster. But, there are tricks to bagging an assignment.
So if you’ve got a good idea but don’t know where to go or how to start, look no more. This class is for you.
In six hours we’ll cover:
✓ finding your story,
✓ finding the market,
✓ tweaking the same idea for different magazines,
✓ writing a query that sells,
✓ photo requirements,
✓ approaching an editor. And that’s just for starters.
