Magazines Celebrate!

Magazines celebrate popular holidays such as Christmas and Thanksgiving to lesser-known holidays like National Ice Cream Month. They need you to write the articles! Some magazines are looking for craft projects, some non-fiction, and some fictional pieces. All of the magazines, however, are looking for a new slant on the holiday. Christmas, Thanksgiving and Valentine's Day generate the most submissions. Editors are always in need of these articles, but they must offer a fresh approach. To find a market for your article, study the magazine websites for submission policy and the current needs. Visit your local library and review past issues for tone, content and direction of other articles. Writing magazine articles is an excellent way to boost your publishing credits, and bring in a little extra cash. Check out the following sites to find a home for your article:
