Each industry and profession has at least one national publication. In the early 1980s, as I was getting my hair cut, I noticed a copy of American Salon on the reading table. I copied down the information from their masthead. I contacted them about writing a freelance article on “Preventing Burnout,” which at that time was a very “hot” topic. Another approach is to write the article and submit it to the magazine, instead of being assigned the article. The more quotes you can get from industry professionals, the better your chances of getting it published.
