Test your idea:
To lead to a sale, your question must convince the publisher that you have a clear idea of what you intend to cover in the article and what approach you intend to take.
So, before writing the letter, think carefully about your idea of article and imagine describing the article to a friend.
Find your corner:
Finding your corner is often a matter of narrowing down your topic. An argument like “Sport” is too general, narrowing the field to “table tennis” is better. For example, by reducing the story to a single dimension, for example, focusing on a key person, place or event, you get a salable angle.
When your subject is popular, you need to give the editor a new approach. One way is to take an idea like “Overcoming bankruptcy” and make a change to something like “Bankruptcy can be good for you”. It is not necessary to be exotic to sell, something as trivial as “New and improved” has worked by adding a new usual ingredient.
While many questions can be entirely written by your own knowledge, a little research can pay big dividends by seducing the editor. The facts sell publishers on an idea. Publishers look for questions with many specificities: do not just write that “Millions of people have suffered from yeast infections last year”. Say how many millions – and why!
Search for both the topic and the markets you are looking at. A common reason for the refusal is due to the inadequate knowledge of the magazine.
Modeling your raw material:
After having the basics:
the turning point / facts, e
then you are ready to write your question. A good query starts strong and is never released until the editor is sold. Follow the two dictates of the newspapers; The five W (who, what, where, when, why) that immediately explain the story, and “the inverted pyramid” that emphasized before putting the most interesting information. You will lose the editor’s interest if you save the best for last, and always remember EDITOR’S CUT FROM BOTTOM UP!
3 main sections for a query:
The main paragraph
The biography of the author.
Everyone has a specific purpose: first, tell the publisher what the story is, so why should he buy it and finally who will write it?
The Lead – is intended to hook the editor and make him want to continue reading.
Once you’ve caught the editor’s attention, go directly to a summary of the article.
Summary: This section should convince the publisher that you know where you want to go with the article; It should outline the points you want to cover or provide concrete information about your topic, providing just enough to show that your story is real. Here you can mention your sources. Tell the editor with whom you will speak and if the experts are at the forefront of today’s technology. Also include here a provisional title for the article. Do not spend much time trying to get a provocative title, because the titles are often modified by the publisher before publication.
Author’s bio: it’s where you sell yourself as a writer to the publisher now that you sold it to the idea. Do not be shy; publishers expect some sales in the bio. There is nothing wrong with saying: “I am very qualified to write this article because …” if he follows a convincing reason. Begin your biography with your publication credits and include magazines similar to those you are publishing if you can.
