Advice needed on interested publications

mcrean1(z8 GA)July 11, 2004

Hey folks,

I'll soon complete my first major greenhouse assembly project and I have the experience chronicled and have loads of pics. I could format the material in a number of ways -- a review of this manufacturer's greenhouse (I'd be the first), a first person first-timers experience, or a how-to/what-to-look for piece.

Can any of you recommend a direction I should take and any possible interested publications I can approach? I welcome any thoughts or feedback anyone may have.

I have some regional publications identified as possible options, but one can never have enough opportunities ;-)

Thanks all.

You could contact Steve Giddings of Georgia Gardener magazine at:
or you can contact
Cindy Pugliese of New South Gardener at:
Both pay close to the same, but contact each, visit their web sites, then decide.

Hey Eddie,

Thanks for the advice. I'm a subscriber to Georgia Gardener, but had not heard of New South Gardener. Do you know if these publications routinely take unsolicited articles, and perhaps what their lead times are?

Yes, they accept unsolicited articles. They should publish their lead time under writers guidelines on their sites?

I looked on both sites for their guidelines and I don't see them on-line. I went ahead and e-mailed the editors and asked for copies.

BTW, have you published in these before?

Before I close here, I wanted to say thank you so much for helping me out. Always nice to meet another friendly writer.

Thanks again.

Isn't this the kind of piece that Fine Gardening uses? Your experience would be interesting to gardeners everywhere, so I don't see why a regional publication would be the way to go.

Having written only for a local newspaper, I can attest that it's probably more gratifying to be published in a national magazine.

Digging in the Dirt has a very good point. I don't know why I only recommended regional publications.
