Here it is, in one box set: the two books every article writer needs to sell a complete words-and-picture package to a magazine editor. How to write magazine articles and how to take photos that will help you sell those words. The Complete Article Writer shows you how to come up with the right idea for the right market, time and time again. Don’t write one article - write six or more! It explores how to analyse a publication to identify its readership and the freelancing opportunities within it. Then it guides you into twisting your idea so it appeals to the core readership and the most important reader of all - the editor. With detailed advice about beginnings, middles and endings (the various middle structures can help you exploit your ideas even further), along with other pieces of page furniture, including boxouts, sidebars and photos, The Complete Article Writer will show you how to offer an editor the complete package. And to ensure you approach editors professionally, it gives advice on how to pitch (selling an idea to an editor before you write the piece), and how to negotiate the minefield of publishing rights. Whether you’ve always wanted to write an article but don’t know where to start, or have had some success and want to build upon it further, reading this book will make you an editor’s dream supplier. You will become The Complete Article Writer. Photography for Writers: Which would you rather be: the writer paid £200 for an article or the writer/photographer paid £600 for an illustrated article? Practically every magazine uses photographs, so why not make the editor's life easier and supply them with your words? Become an editor's dream supplier by sending them a complete words-and-picture package. Some magazines will only use writers who can supply the photos, so taking photos might open up new markets to you. Digital photography has made photography accessible to all and, even if you have a mobile phone camera, it is possible to take publishable pictures. Photography for Writers explains the basics of digital photography, the different markets available to writers with a camera, how to submit their images, what to do with their images afterwards, how to use photography for research, and even how to get photos to illustrate your articles if you don't have a camera. Take your writing to the next level ... with photos! Increase your publication opportunities and boost your writing income!
