Where to Find Freelance Magazine Markets

on July 29, 2008 in Freelance Writing

So far the only print work I've done is ghostwriting trade magazine pieces for business clients, and I haven't even done a huge amount of that. I'd really love to get something published in print in my own name, just for the sake of doing something different (although I doubt I'd ever make it a priority over Web writing). I've been recently looking into some magazine markets to see who I'd like to pitch when I have some time, and I thought I'd share some places where you can find freelance magazine markets if you're also interested:

  • WritersMarket.com - This is a paid site, and one of the more popular options. You can search both consumer and trade magazines here.
  • MediaBistro - If you join their Avant Guild program, you can access their "how to pitch" articles, which offer detailed pitching advice for quite a few magazines.
  • WritersWeekly.com - You can find quite a few magazine markets in this ezine.
  • The Writer's Life - This site offers free listings of paying magazine markets.

Do you have other favorite resources for finding freelance magazine markets or other writers' markets online?

Thanks for sharing!

    Freelancewritinggigs.com has “Market Mondays.” Magazine markets are listed there.

    I use the print version of Writer’s Market. Freelance Writing Gigs is also good as Laytoya mentions. AbsoluteWrite.com has a paid and free version of a newsletter that lists a few markets every week.
