So an interesting thing has happened the past couple days… On a whim I sent an email to the editor of a UK-based gay magazine asking about article submissions.
I was totally expecting some generic ‘thanks but no thanks’ type letter as I’ve gotten from other publications in the past.
But instead I got a generic (he apologised for it being such) response that was quite encouraging regarding freelancing, advising me of what they look for in article submissions and such.
I was totally shocked. I don’t think he’s read my blog or anything (though I had put a link in my email.. so he might have), but he’s given me some guidelines for submitting ideas for potential articles.
So I wanted to put things to you guys – what do you think I should suggest? I was thinking of the ‘Digital Dating’ type of articles or the ‘Gay Dating Tips’ one I posted the other day. Though rewritten so it’s more generic and appealing to a wider audience instead of being from my own personal point of view.
Of course there’s no guarantee they’ll accept my ideas or articles, let alone publish them (fingers crossed!).. But I’ve got to at least give it a try.
Any ideas or suggestions?
