    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.
