It’s a good idea to research publishers, magazines, and agents prior to submitting articles!

Here are some valuable resources for you to use to find “that” fit!

  1. Writer’s Market 2016: The Most Trusted Guide to Getting Published
    1. I bought this off Amazon when I took a writing class last fall.  It has been helpful in finding important information like:  Magazines that are likely to publish new and emerging writers; websites; Book Agents, Periodical publishers, Regional publications,  and Submission Guidelines (these are very important because you will need to follow specific guidelines in order to get published)  Prepare yourself for what a magazine wants!  I highlighted all the publishers that would be a good fit for me.  I placed them in my notebook and listed what their basic requirements are.  I also categorized them based on the subject matter I would submit.
  2. Writer for Hire: 101 Secrets to Freelance Success by Kelly James – Enger
    1. I read this book from Amazon Kindle.  This is a well-written book that is realistic and motivational.  This book reinforced what I learned in my online class about making money through writing.  Kelly gives really good basic information that beginners should know.
