Right now I am waiting on one newspaper article to be published and researching another. I’ve also completed an article for a regional magazine, it, too, is awaiting publication. This article required a number of historical photographs; I enjoyed trying to secure the right images, along with copyright releases for them and permission to use forms.
I’ve also recently pitched Sunset magazine and Smithsonian. As well as two local, city based magazines. For me, it’s not really a question about what to write on, it’s about what not to write. And, of course, it’s a matter of getting accepted. I think the thing is to have at least five or six query letters out at any one time. Keep writing, keep trying.
