One of the best ways to get started in writing is by writing for magazines. In this digital age we often forget about the magazine market. However, magazines are bigger than ever publishing not only in print and online. As an editor of a small magazine, Terri Main, the instructor for this course knows how difficult it is to find quality material. This course is designed to give you the tools to write and sell to national, regional, and trade publications.

This course includes how to find your magazine writing niche, how to approach editors, how to pre-sell an article before you write it, how to research, plan, write, and edit your articles. By the end of the course, you will have written a short 500-1000 word article and have a list of publishers you intend to contact.

Topics Covered:
  • Finding Your Niche
  • Getting Ideas
  • Developing a Theme Idea
  • Understanding the Market
  • Writing a Query Letter
  • Researching Your Article
  • Researching Online
  • Organizing Your Article
  • Writing Your First Draft
  • Editing Your Article
  • Turning One Idea into Many Sales

Review of Writing Magazine Articles That Sell with Terri Main. I’ve hesitated to write a review of this class because I don’t have much positive to say. The class was scheduled to run 4/5-4/25, not a lot of time to produce a salable magazine article from scratch, but doable with a well-organized presentation and a responsive instructor. I had high hopes, especially when I read one of the initial postings saying we’d need to do work every day. This sounded like an intensive class – just what I was looking for. Unfortunately, that was not the case. My chief complaint is the lack of Ms. Main’s attention to the class. Lectures and assignments were sporadically posted, often after the date the related assignment was supposed to be due (the last 4 were posted on 4/24, the day before the class was scheduled to end and then after a second inquiry about her absence). Even at the beginning, she often went days without responding to student posts and then with sparse, generic comments that offered nothing in the way of constructive criticism or guidance. I was concerned enough by 4/10 to reach out to the moderator and ask if there was a problem. While all lessons were eventually posted and a compilation of them provided by the moderator after the class had ended, overall this class was a huge disappointment.
From SavvyAuthors Admins: Hello, Deborah, We are sorry to hear that you had a less positive experience with this class. Unfortunately, there was some communication issues with the instructor, but we believe we have worked it out for future classes. We appreciate your feedback, and look forward to seeing you on the SavvyAuthors forums soon. ~ RJ Garside, Workshop & Special Events Coordinator
