Return to E-zee Writer back issues

This month we have expert advice from Simon Whaley on how to get six articles from just one idea and Ten Top Tips will help you find the ideas used for the six articles. There are loads of Student Successes to give you an incentive to keep trying and Useful Websites is all about citizen journalism.

End Note and a Little Inspiration!

Just in case you are new to reading E-Zee Writer, I’m going to explain this section. When writing articles for magazines, you need to be sending them about six months before you’d like them to be published. This is so the publisher has plenty of time to receive, read and decide if he wants to include your article in the publication. Those of you who’ve sent off articles for consideration know how long some publishers can take to get back to you. If you send something that you intend for a Christmas issue only two months before, it’s not enough time for the publishers to deal with it. And, in any case, by that time they’ll have had the issue in its final incarnation for some time. So now I’ve explained that, let’s get on.

September marks the start of the harvesting months and you’ll find plenty of ripe, juicy native fruits to pick in hedgerows and fields in the UK. But, if you do pick wild foods, please remember to leave some for the animals and insects, and other human foragers too!
