Every writer meets with rejection and projects which are never published. In fact, I have files of material which has circulated and never been published. Increase Your Publications Odds The bulk of my magazine writing is done on assignment.
How do you get an assignment? Which magazines do you read on a consistent basis? Your familiarity with these publications and the types of articles that they publish, gives you some needed background.
Pull out the magazines that come into your home. Organize them with several months from the same publication.

If you send them a how-to article which is not written in the first person, you are asking for rejection.
Or if you write a story about someone else in the third-person, you will again invite rejection. After you have studied the publications, then write the publication for their writers guidelines.
Almost every magazine has guidelines for their author. Write a simple letter asking for guidelines and enclose a self-addressed, stamped envelope for the response. You can find the address for the publication usually on the masthead of the magazine under editorial offices.Key stage 3; KS3 Writing; Media texts Search options.
