Customizing writing samples so they're in line with a print publication's style and mission
Okay, so I'm learning. What does this mean? How do I determine the print publications style and mission?
The only way to determine that is to read the magazine or whatever and see their style. If you look at any magazine you can get an idea of who it is geared to and how they lure in their readers.
Cosmo magazine for instance is aimed at a very different group than Lady's Home journal, so the writing styles are very different.
I believe this is what you are aiming for.To fit in.
this makes sense. let me see if I get it right.
Okay, the mag is Cosmo so I write an article geared toward the 'peppy in pink' type girl who knows everything there is to know about fashion, makeup etc.
If the mag is Ladies Home Journal I write an article for the woman of the house who has money to spend on remodeling and redecorating her home to read
This is what is meant by style? I need to do some research and find the mag I can write for! lol
I agree with Jeanmeriam, read previous material from the publictaion. How long are there articles? What kind of language do they use and who are they aimed at? Who are there audience and what age group are they aimed at? That sort of thing. I hope this helps, good luck.

The magazine that I have been writing for has folded (excuse the blatent pun), shame because it was helping me to build a nice little portfolio. At least I got all my copies first!This is a long shot, but I wondered whether any hubbers are involved with print publications? I am not looking for...
