Article Writing

Many of the magazines listed on my Short Story Markets page will be interested in taking a look at any articles you have written - provided, of course, that they are suitable in both content and style for whichever magazine you are targeting. It is usually better, though, to approach article writing by first having a market in mind and then writing the article. As with short stories, read as many current issues of your target magazine as possible to familiarise yourself with length and style and so on; then compose a brief query letter to the editor, stating your idea and any special slant you've thought of that might help you sell it. Be sure to mention anything you've already had published; and if you have specialist knowledge that particularly qualifies you to write in whichever field you have chosen, let the editor know this, too. Show him or her that you are the consummate professional at all times - ask the right questions: required length, the going rates for contributors to the magazine etc. And always enclose an SAE. If an editor shows any interest at all in your proposition, believe me, you are already three-quarters of the way to getting your article published - providing you don't ruin everything by sending an amateurishly presented manuscript. If you're unsure about presentation, click here.

For much more information on agents and editors (as well as comprehensive listings), consult the new editions of The Writer's Handbook or The Writers' and Artists' Yearbook - 2012 editions now available from Amazon.co.uk. Also available, an essential resource for writers and artists wanting to enter the highly competitive world of children's publishing: Children's Writers' & Artists' Yearbook 2012

Please remember that the information on this page, and the listings of publishers that follow, is not intended as a definitive guide, but rather a starting point. It's simply impossible to keep everything up to date on a daily basis, so please do check websites and writers' handbooks where possible.
