7 Superstars in Writing & Publishing Interviews!
Over the last couple of months, I’ve been interviewing seven superstars from the writing and publishing world via video. The first one with fulltime freelance writer Linda Formichelli is a real treat.
Ever wanted to write for magazines but didn’t know where to start? We have the perfect lady to help with that.
The smart and savvy Linda Formichelli is a veteran freelance writer for Redbook, WebMD, Women’s Health, Family Circle, Writer’s Digest and lots, lots more. Linda’s been a freelance writer since 1997, supporting her family with the income. In this short and sweet interview you’ll hear Linda’s views and experience on:
– How to get started writing for magazines
– How to build a portfolio and get around the “no experience” issue
– How and what to pitch to a magazine
