The Basics of Being a Contributor


(1 Votes)


Many of the magazines I read include a feature that highlights their contributors. Contributors can be regular writers used by the magazine for every issue to more freelance writers to those who contribute a submission one time. It’s always interesting to read the brief bios and learn a little about the contributor. I’ve been a contributor on all levels in many mediums and you can do it, too. There are two main ways to become a contributor; you can be the one to approach a company or they can approach you.

The first and easiest way to be a contributor is to approach the media outlet, whether it is an online newsletter like Creative Income, a TV program like Creative Living on PBS, or a consumer magazine like Woman’s Day. All you need to do is study the medium, get a feel for its themes/topic matter/editorial calendar and find a “hole” or need that medium might have. For Creative Income, you should submit an idea that has a focus for earning income using creativity, for Creative Living you’ll need a segment that visually shows information about any aspect of the home, and for Woman’s Day the reach is even broader with a theme of a woman’s place in today’s world.

This is all most helpful information! After having spent a lifetime learning my crafts and perfecting my techniques I am confident in my abilities but it requires a whole other skill set to take it to the next level and either sell your wares and/or pass on what you have learned to others. Thanks so much for all the business information. If things go as I am planning they will you will be seeing and hearing a lot more from me!
