Product Description

Product Description

Writing Freelance Features tells you all you need to know to get started as a freelance writer – someone capable of devising, researching, writing and selling freelance features to newspaper and magazine editors on a regular basis. The book covers equipment and resources, journalism jargon, types of feature, generating ideas and conducting research, identifying target publications, interviewing tips and techniques, writing and formatting a 1000-word feature, pitching to editors, invoicing and pay rates, legal issues (including copyright) and more besides. Writing Freelance Features has been adapted from the popular and successful course ‘Writing Freelance Magazine Articles’ devised and taught by the author at Richmond Adult & Community College in Surrey. An accessible ‘how to’ guide, Writing Freelance Features is designed to demystify the writing and pitching process while providing you with all the key information you need to get you up and running and experiencing the joy of seeing your name in print sooner rather than later.

5.0 out of 5 stars Writing Freelance Features 21 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
As a huge fan of magazines from Cosmo,Glamour,to Psychologies I thought I'd get this e-book and attempt to earn money from magazines (rather than just spend money on them for a change).

It is first-rate- especially the chapters on Generating ideas, Pitching to an editor, Invoicing and getting paid (very important that one!)as everything is written in such a clear way.

Whether you are just toying with the idea of writing for magazines, or hell-bent on being a freelance feature writer then I do think this guide is a must.

An e-book that sells for under £5 and can possibly earn you hundreds makes economic sense too.
