Assignment: Magazine Analysis

The question to be answered: Where might you submit your big story and how does it fit that publication? Things you will search for include:

·      Writer’s guidelines for the publication
·      Several magazine or section covers (if print) or the home page (if Internet).
·      An editorial calendar for that publication
·      Stories from that publication that reflect the subject matter or the style of your story
·      Advertisements in the publication that suggest how your story fits into the worldview of the people at whom these ads are aimed
·      Editor’s notes
·      Letters to the editor
·      Online comments on particular stories
·      A demographic breakdown of the publication’s readers if such a breakdown is not included in the writer’s guidelines or editorial calendar.
