OK, how can I get started?
Hi! I would like to write for trade magazines, but have had no luck. I want to try again with another letter of interest, but all my drafts have gotten bad reviews here. Some writers on abs. write said I should query ideas to trades instead. (One person even suggested a write an article on spec and query with that.) Bear in mind that I have no relevant experience or credentials to any trades and am just trying to get into trade mags that I have some interest in.
Is there anyone experienced in trade mags who can help me one-on-one, or is it smart for me to just give up?
