I wasn't sure where to post this, but I have an article I want to sub to magazines such as TEEN VOGUE, COSMO GIRL, and SEVENTEEN. I've checked their sites, and googled, and am having no luck. Please help!

You might get a copy of Writer's Market.  It should have everything you need.

My local libraries usually carry the most recent one.  The Children's Writers and Illustrators Market is good for all that info.  You can get it at the bookstore, too.  The 2008 ed is the most current one out now I believe.  Good luck!

Articles editors change frequently. Check out the masthead in a current issue and see who is the current articles/features editor and submit your pitch to that person. Generally, you have to submit a pitch/query, especially for these national publications, and then submit the aritcle upon request.

Good luck.

Thank you Brian.  :love Of course, I knew Amy Astley is the Editor-In-Chief of Teen Vogue, and *bows* ANNA WINTOUR is the Editor-In-Chief of Vogue and the art director of Teen Vogue. I know Kate White *love* is the EID of Cosmopolitan, and I know Kim French is EID of Lucky Magazine.  I'm not fashion obsessed.

These links are great, and the masthead is helpful, but in order for your query to land on the right desk, you need to call and ask.  For example, the essays ed and the "as told to" ed may be different.  Whoever answers the phone may connect you immediately to THAT editor, so be prepared if he/she asks you what you have in mind.

Either way, try to find out from somebody:

1. if the appropriate editor is open to e-queries or wants snail
2. if he/she need clips and wants hard-copy clips or electronic


Good luck!

You're welcome Adaora. But as Nan said, the correct address isn't very helpful if you send your query to the wrong editor.  ;)

Writer's Market is limited in terms of info for older teens (16+).  I've been to the SCBWI website and there were a few other mag's suggested there.  But my best luck has been surfing the mag shelves in stores.
