Posts: n/a
For anyone who writes magazine articles, getting something published
in Elle Dcor is a major coup. It is a very prestigious magazine and
also pays well. An article in Elle Dcor really belongs at the top of
any writers resume. When writing about any subject, before you submit
a story about a home for Elle Dcor magazine, you must do your homework
and research to catch the editors eye. Choosing the Right SubjectThe
homes featured in Elle Dcor magazine are only the finest and the most
elegant. So if you pitch an article about shabby chic or primitive
decoration, the editor is unlikely to want your writing. Homes that
fit Elle Dcor magazine can be found in every city, but you, the writer
must figure out where. A good place to look is your citys Christmas
or spring tour of homes. Only homeowners who have great dcor and are
proud of it would put their home on a tour.When you think you have
identified a house for Elle Dcor magazine, check through back issues
to make sure that particular house has never been profiled. Also,
make sure your angle is fresh. The editor will never take a story on
a homes distinctive topiary, for example, if she ran another topiary
story the previous month. Elles editorial board requires
sophistication first, but beyond that, the magazine features style
from all over the world. Elles home dcor style is usually quite
international in fact. The magazine is originally French after all.
Sending Your QueryJust like with any magazine, you must find out about
Elle Dcors editorial guidelines the magazines rules for submission.
There will be a different word count limit for each section:
features, reviews and trends. Some editors require that you send
relevant pictures with your submission. All require that you include
reference to your previously published work. Because Elle Dcor is
such a prestigious magazine, it can be hard to find the right contact
information and the editorial guidelines. Getting this information
and sending a dazzling letter to the right person at the right time is
actually part of your pitch. If you can get a piece of paper in front
of the right editor, always a busy woman with plenty of secretaries to
intercept bad letters, it shows you probably have the tenacity of a
good writer. For the brand new writer, Elle Dcor might not be the
best choice because previously published articles are so important.
After you write for some other magazines, find a good topic and send
it to the right editor; you might find your writing in Elle Dcor.
