Oregon Christian Writers is honored to welcome the following magazine and newspaper editors to 2013 summer conference.
If you want to expand your reader-circle, think seriously about submitting to periodical editors. Whether you are writing fiction or nonfiction, turn your research into an article. Writing for magazines or e-zines gives you publishing experience and a wider (often much wider) audience than a book will—and more immediate compensation. Also, as your career progresses, you can market your books through your bio printed at the end of articles. It’s a great way to build those bylines. Editors and agents love to find writers with exposure!
(Note: Not all of these are paying markets.)
Remember: Bring extra articles/pitches to the conference and sign up for on-the-spot meetings with these editors in the Writing Center.
Review each editor’s preferences and what they’re looking for, note:
• Magazine and newspaper editors may accept articles or devotionals through the conference manuscript submissions program. Check for general submission guidelines and how to submit articles (must be postmarked by July 27).
• Some will review submissions only at the conference.
