Each magazine is packed full of advice so if you have experience in any area linked to a wedding – flower arranging, printing, cake making and decorating, dress making etc, you may be able to write an article for a wedding magazine. Many of the magazines also feature actual weddings. So if your wedding was held somewhere out of the ordinary or you were taken to the church in a vehicle with a difference, one of the magazines may well like to hear about it.
- N is for nature. Do you like the great outdoors? Perhaps you’re a keen photographer and like to take photos of plants, birds and other wildlife. Some high quality photos and an article about the subjects of the photos may result in a sale. There are plenty of magazines dedicated to the subject of nature. A lot of county magazines also feature articles about nature in their particular areas. These include places, walks and wildlife.
- O is for operation. A lot of the women’s weeklies have health pages inviting true stories about operations and any other health issues.
