Outreach Blog of the Garden Writers 2014 Pittsburgh Symposium

“Garden writing was the horse that came in. In a class titled ‘Magazine Writing that Sells,’ I queried magazines about Politics, Parenting, Travel, Home Décor, and Gardening. Sunset Magazine bit on my gardening article.

“Some advice to new writers: When your query gets rejected, don’t go down; go up. I’d been rejected by a local newspaper before I submitted the idea to Sunset.”
