Reviews - What do customers think about Writing for Trade Magazines: How to Boost Your Income by $200 to $500 per Week?
This is an incredibly useful book, one of a kind ! Apr 2, 2000
There are very few books in Hanson's field (I should know, I reviewed over 1,000!), and this book is by far the best of the lot!
The book is a veritable tour-de-force by a highly knowledgable writer/editor/journalist, with detailed, easy-to-read and eminently practical advice for novice and practitioner alike. The book's pages are studded with insights, tantalizing ideas, and marketing suggestions. This is, in my view, one of those very few MUST-HAVE books for all interested in a writing career!
Definitive, practical, profitable reading. Mar 5, 2000
In Writing For Trade Magazines: How To Boost Your Income By $200 To $500 Per Week, veteran trade editor and professional writer Kendall Hanson provides detailed information on how to research, query, and write articles that will sell to the trade magazine industry. Hanson's advice is practical, thorough, and "writer friendly". Writing For Trade Magazines emphasizes that good trade writers don't need to be trained in journalism or hold English Lit degrees, what they do need is to make effective contacts with potential publication clients and write interesting pieces for trade magazines. Writing For Trade Magazines is "must" reading for any aspiring author seeking to make sales to magazines, periodicals and journals, and holds a great deal of sound and valued information for even experienced professionals on enhancing and maximizing their sales and cash flow.
Trade Journal Writing made Easy! Dec 14, 1999
I found this piece of work to be a fantastic resource for all writers. It is written in an easy to understand language that makes the reading quite easy (most writers get to technical and their readers doze off quickly).
This book is a must for all writers for trade publications and those who want to write for trade pubs.
As a writer for several trade newspapers I found many examples of interviewing techniques that can make my job easier.
