Writing For Magazines. Suggestions?

0 comments suggest edit

For some reason, I’ve always wanted to write a book. It started off as a desire to write the next Lord of the Rings classic, but has morphed into writing a reasonably useful technical book.

So after reading Mike Gunderloy’s 8 part “Advice for Writers” and Eric Gunnerson’s post “So You Want to Write a Computer Book”, I’ve come to the conclusion that it might be better for me to start off with a few print articles.

Ultimately I’d love to contribute an article to Wired (the best damn magazine on Earth…and beyond), but for now, I’m looking at various .NET technical journals and magazines. If you have experience writing for a magazine and have recommendations on publishers who were great to work with, please let me know.

    It's hard to beat writing an article for MSDN Magazine. They have a good staff, are knowledgeable, are reasonable to work with, and pay well. And I hear MSDN Online is very similar.

    That's pretty much the only place I've thought about, which is why I'm trying to find out if there are other good options. I'll probably give them a try. Thanks for the tip.

    If MSDN Magasine is anything like MSDN online, be prepared for a loooong wait from the time the article is finished and the time it is finally published...
