How to start writing for trade, niche, and international magazines

There’s a whole world of publishing opportunities outside your local newsstand.

Where to find these magazines

The Writer updates a curated list of niche and trade magazines every year in our October issue. Wikipedia can provide a starting point as well to browse potential U.S. magazines and trade publications as well as international ones.  These online resources also provide additional avenues to find niche and trade publications:

New Pages:

Funds for Writers:

Freedom With Writing:

For international publications, explore these:

Also, check your local library’s website. Google is helpful, but many times libraries have access to bigger databases, allowing users to find more information. With my library, there is an “ask the librarian” feature where I’m able to email my question directly to the research librarian. This could prove useful if you are searching for a certain type of publication and are having a difficult time finding it.
