Get Your Articles Published In Magazines

Apr 1, 2008
If you have made up your mind that you would like to start writing, then first identify the subjects that you would like to write about. Then do as much research on that topic as you possibly can so that no errors or half-truths get published in your article. Once you have made a list of some of the topics which you feel you could write informative articles on, then it is time to approach a magazine.

This magazine can be contacted by sending the editorial a 'query letter'. This letter should be a brief description of yourself along with your educational qualifications and your experience if any, and the content of the article, which you propose to write for them. This will give the publishers some idea of who you are and as to the topics in which you are interested in writing.

You can also attach a short article on any topic, which you have written. This will give the publishers an example of your knowledge and style of writing. Depending on your query letter and their need, the magazine will send you a letter stating the topic on which they want the article to be written along with the number of words required. Then, you can start writing your article.

Your article should be related to the topic given to you. It should be precise and clear. Your intended readers should understand what you are trying to convey. If it is not a technical article then try to inject some subtle humor into your article. Humor always helps. Maintain the length as specified by the magazine.

Do not ramble on about the subject or mention facts that are not verified, especially on technical subjects. Always deliver your articles before or on time. At the start, you might not get paid for your articles. It is okay as long as they get published and your name at least starts getting familiar in the magazine.

If your articles are really good, then the publishers themselves will offer you an incentive to keep on supplying them with more articles. Also be prepared for rejection or changes to be made to your articles by your publishers. Until you establish yourself, it is very difficult to call the shots in the publishing world.

Take feedback from the publishers as well as your friends and relatives after they have read your article. This will help you to implement changes quickly into your style of writing. Now, with the advent of the Internet, you can follow the same procedure to write articles on the Internet, the only difference being that you might have to submit your query letter and articles online. So being a little Internet savvy will definitely help.

So, go ahead, let your budding thoughts flower into articles. Until you try, you will never know if you are cut out for writing. So, go for it.
