How to Write and Sell Your Stories to Magazines (in print and online)

Writing for magazines and newspapers is a great way to hone your craft while you’re waiting for your next novel or children’s book to be published. Learn how this journalistic style of writing helps you make connections and improve your writing skills.

Join BEACON Senior News Editor Cloie Sandlin as she discusses the art of writing engaging stories for magazines, newspapers and the web, from pitching stories to an editor and coming up with interview questions to weaving your interviews and research into a finished piece that hooks your reader. She’ll talk about style, best practices and what makes a good article (quotes are key!). She’ll also cover fact-checking your story and journalism dos and don’ts.
