What are some magazines that accept submissions from a beginner?
The best way to find magazines that would be interested in writers who have yet to earn any “clips” would be to consult the latest version of the Writer’s Market. “Clips” are articles that a writer has written/published and subsequently clipped (hence the name) from the magazine to provide samples of his/her writing ability to a prospective magazine or newspaper. This is a practice that was more common “back in the day” some 20 to 25 years ago, but is less common now with the advent of digital technology.
The Writer’s Market, often referred to as the “bible for writers,” is considered to be a sort of ‘one stop shopping,’ if you will, for anyone who is interested in freelance writing and locating publications that fit a particular genre. It contains listings of magazines, newspapers, journals, etc. with all of the aforementioned specifying the type of articles they usually publish, frequency, reader demographic, circulation, etc. Many of the magazines listed pay for submissions and they often include their pay-per-word rates as well. If you find a publication that interests you, be sure to request a link to or PDF copy of their submission guidelines. The submission guidelines go into more detail about the type of material and stories that the magazine publishes. Simply follow this link to find out more about the Writer’s Market and how to order a copy.
