hi there i want to write for a magazine any help thanks?
As in write fiction for a literary magazine? Or sort of journalism style?
I'm assuming your writing fiction, but what specific genre do you write in?
just journalism and sum fiction!!!
You need to specify a primary field and genre, preferably one in which you hold some demonstrable knowledge. Magazines sell to specific markets and their writers usually reflect their intended audience. For example, I wrote for a fishing magazine for many years. I was also a regional "pro" who actively participated in the magazine's industry. If you want to be taken seriously by any magazine editor, you'd better be able to offer something special to "his/her" market.
Try this place. It's got listings for pretty much any kind of fiction magazine you'd want to write for. Duotrope's Digest
