Post #2010 – 20060720

I am a freelance writer and recently saw your name on the masterhead of a new parenting magazine. At first I thought it was from the publishers of Simple Things (or Simple Thing?) but then I looked more carefully and saw it was from the publishers of FamilyFun.

Can you tell me about what you do for them? Have you done a lot of magazine writing?

Any advice on querying for less experienced writers?

Daniel replies:

I do write a column for Wonder Time magazine, but it never occured to me to look at the masthead. I don't know anything about querying. Not really a magazine writer--this just happened to happen.
