A Cracking Christmas Calling!
Yes, I know it’s the end of August and you don’t really want to be thinking about Christmas just yet, despite many of the stores clearly believing you should be but now is the time to be sending your Christmas stories and articles out. It’s no good waiting until December. Magazines will have planned their Christmas issues long before then, especially so in the case of a monthly publication; the December Christmas issue will have been in the shops since November.
Christmas is arguably the most popular season and so editors receive more submissions relating to this time of year than any other; therefore, the sooner you send your Christmas piece off, the greater chance you’ll stand of it being accepted.
Here’s a picture to get you in the Christmas way of thinking! Though, as you’ll see, you’re not alone in thinking it’s far too soon to be thinking about all things tinsely and bright!
