Writing for Trade and Niche Magazines

Free webinar

April 5th, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. EDT (11:00 a.m. PST)

Currently there are over 7,000 magazines in the U.S. – and they all need content. Many of these publications are niche and trade magazines that you won’t find on the newsstand. Taught by accomplished freelance writer Kerrie Flanagan, this free webinar covered why you should consider writing for these publications, how to find these different markets, how to approach them, and tips for increasing chances of success.
