It’s not as hard as you think. It just takes a lot of time and practice to find the right formula.
A few additional things to remember:
- Always write about what you’re interested in. Never write on a topic you’re not interested in just because it’s popular.
- That being said, carefully angle the topic you’re writing about so it is appealing and sharable.
- Do your homework. Another unique feature of magazine writing is that it involves credible research and interviews to back up the author’s points.
I wish you luck on your pitching endeavors! Be confident! Your ideas matter!
