Writer's Guidelines

The Write Markets Report focuses on “selling” the written word. We do not seek articles on how to write. Rather, we seek articles on how to make more money doing what you love....writing! We are also interested in other forms of home-based business and self-employment that may result from writing, such as self-publishing, corporate writing, ghostwriting, etc. All ideas that help writers support themselves performing the work they love is warmly welcomed.

Length: ~600 words

Rights: First, one-time or reprint rights

HOW TO SUBMIT:

Submit query with credits by e-mail to aadair@electrotex.com

NEEDS: Queries. We are seeking articles on various ways for writers to make money from their writing (i.e. unique assignments, corporate services, self publishing, marketing and networking advice, alternative products and services that writers can pursue and sell). Pays $50 for first rights, $30 for reprints for articles to 600 words. Submit query and credits by e-mail or by mail with SASE. E-mail queries to aadair@electrotex.com.

PHOTOS/ART: Mugshot of author required with completed ms.

HINTS: Humor is always appreciated. Our readers want to work for themselves and be able to support their families with their writing. Most write for the magazine industry and are looking for other ways to supplement or enhance their writing career. Past articles include ghostwriting, writing for the medical market, newsletter publishing, self-publish for profit, and unique ways to make money writing. We welcome ideas that expand on these or that lead writers to financial opportunities that they do not know exist. Marketing articles that deal with a specific writing-related product or service are warmly welcomed. We will consider but not pay for poetry, cartoons and jokes. Do not submit ideas that are not yet carefully planned. Contemplate your query for a few days before sending it to us. "Quickie" queries and queries with typos are quickly rejected.

COMMON REJECTIONS: Articles we've already done or have scheduled on the editorial calendar; queries laden with typos, unprofessional attitude, cockiness, or rudeness (we get these occasionally); queries that attempt to "fool" the editor (you know who you are).

COMMON ACCEPTANCE: Tightly focused articles; bulleted or outlined queries; "how to" produce this writing product (service) and "how to" sell it. Don't tell us how to get into a type of writing business without telling us how to sell it, too. If you can do it in 600 words, you're obviously a tightly focused, talented writer.
