How to collaborate with the magazine "Biography"

"Biography" — not a typical gloss. Not here to write about 10 ways to meet and 15 recipes of masks at home. Here and there about a dozen texts in one room. The harder it is to get into it, the better should be the article to have it accepted and published. A graduate of the School of the authors gloss Lena Golovina, whose "Biography" has already published two articles, talks about his work.

Elena Golovina:

— Article about Ariadna Efron is my second publication in the "Gala. Biography". The first text was about the Italian singer Robertino Loreti, and the hero was chosen by the editor in chief of the uploaded synopses.

When the text was adopted in the work, I said, "I wonder whether will have any suggested topics?" To which I replied: "For starters, let's wait for the release of the first text." Because categorical no sound, I actively set to work.

How to become a favorite author of the gloss?

"The man who can't write a letter so that it can be read to the end, can hardly cope with the article".
Olga Sevastyanova, editor of the magazine "cosmopolitan"

What do you think, what the author will order the text? The one who will send "beautiful" summary who ask for the job, promised to do his time and, most importantly, for free (!) or the author who will offer the editorial something a little more specific and fits the format?

  • what has changed in the gloss for the last year and what you need to be prepared authors
  • who is the perfect author with which you want to operate,
  • why is the first letter to the editor should be given special attention
  • what are the main mistakes that potential authors
  • some letters just do not need to send
  • what should be the text, so you want to publish
  • how NOT to write for magazines,
  • and who is the "Golden" author!
  • She also spoke in detail about all the intricacies of the genre "Cosmo" and gave advice on how to prepare texts for them.
  • And, of course, shared their experience!

This webinar is well worth a watch to anyone who wants/dreams/plans to start cooperation with glossy magazines!
