If you are a seasoned journalist or reporter, you probably wouldn't flinch if you were asked to write for a magazine.
This might not be the case if you are a fiction writer. There is no doubt that writing fiction and writing articles is a different skill. The language, the tone are not the same. As well, aspects of articles written for a magazine mean sentences have to be shorter too.
No wonder some fiction authors are hesitant to write for magazines.
Are You Good Enough to Write for a Magazine?
Of course you are good enough!
Every non-fiction article and post has an element of storytelling to it. In fact, if it is going to be interesting it has to include anecdotal information and thoughts.
After all, who wants to read an article that lists of facts and figures? That's the job of newspapers; online and in print.
A magazine article should capture and enthrall (dare I say) its readers.
It should be funny, sad, interesting and more. Magazine articles which simple relay the facts can be very dry indeed.
Where to Start?
enthralled magazine is always looking for writers.
We don't want long, drawn out in-depth pieces, well not yet anyway.
We want articles which can be read and enjoyed over coffee or while waiting for a bus.
Our Submissions Page has the themes we will be focusing on for 2018. There is also a list of ideas to get you started.
Of course, there are some things that we won't publish because we want our magazine to be uber-friendly and accessible to all, including teen writers.
So, our rule is - If you are willing to share the article with your mum or your granny, then it is suitable for publication.
