Do you have a published article in print?

This is not to brag but I want to say that I have several articles that were published in a major magazine here. Animal Scene Magazine is all about pets and if you have been reading my posts you may remember that my niche is pets especially dogs. I know it is not easy to have an article published in print and I was just lucky because my blog was praised by the editor and I was asked to submit an article to their magazine. Although that was a long time ago, I am posting this to serve as inspiration particularly to budding writers.

As a ghost writer yes, in a magazine owned by a mall giant. A friend of mine is a resident writer there and one time he asked me to write several ghost articles for him, so I did it and got paid a good amount. But I still don't have a written published article in my name yet.

Being a ghost writer is good especially if you are not comfortable getting the attention dreawn to you. Some people aren't good with handling pressure and it's part of the reason why some people choose to be anonymous with their articles in publications.

I agree. I'm some kind of scared when people pay to much at me. I prefer to be a ghost writer. In that way, I could still get my article printed and on the same time, remain a peaceful life as before. I cannot handle that pressure where people expect you to be the best when you can only give what you can give.

Yes when I was in high school and college. It was just a school publication. Our College publication won on inter-school competition.

Ow, that's a lost opportunity even if you had been paid for your ghost writing. But in fairness to you at least you had proven to yourself that you can write good articles that are worthy to be published. A big magazine has a panel for screening submissions and I know that it is not easy to get a passing mark.

What is it like being a ghost writer for a while? Didn't you at least wanted to have your name be published alongside your article? I get that you got paid a good amount but is that worth it?

Being a ghost writer as the title implies I basically gave full rights of the article to the client. The article would turn out to be written by the client hence his name would appear as the writer of the article. Well it's a good trade ghost writing gigs can earn me a good sum. But I would really like to see my name in print but I haven't had a good opportunity yet.

I think I'd be okay with being a ghost writer if the price was right. I do think sometimes it can be a risk if you sign rights to the client and then they go and make a ton of money off it, but sometimes it's easier to take that initial sum and sign the rights to the client - not every piece is going to make millions so sometimes being a ghost writer is great (and protects your anonymity!)

That's great. The fact you got those articles accepted and in print should encourage you to publish something under your own name. It is nice your friend paid you fairly as well as a lot of people want something for practically nothing.

Congratulations to you. Its good to know that you are paid with good amount. I think its okay that even if you have no written publication with your name yet as long as you receive a good amount. Later on I believe it can be done.

You have already an experience in the field so it is something tothat be proud of. I don't even have a published article on a magazine, or others. If I were to be given a chance to write, ghostwriter or not, I'll go for it still.

I have done more than just have one of my articles get published in a magazine or newspaper. For starters, I'm a journalist by profession and graduated on top of my class with 2nd class upper grade. I have 2 magazines published when I was still a student in the university and still have copies of it because they are one of my crown achievements when I was still a student.

I've had my articles published in the school magazine before. That's the only time I can remember being in print medium. That was way back a decade ago. I'd be surprised if schools are still printing their publications on paper nowadays. They should conserve paper and save money by just releasing it as an e-book to all the student's email addressees.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

jeffreyjose48

I think school publication is still alive. my daughter who is now in college where i also went still has a school magazine. I think they also have school publication in website in addition to the school paper.

That's included in the miscellaneous fees you're paying. Even in the state universities right now where there is free tuition, it only covers the units you're taking. The state universities took that opportunity to raise the miscellaneous fees. I paid a whopping 3,000 pesos on the fees alone though my units were all paid for. I'd rather had paid 1.5k if it meant not having a printed school publication I didn't even want to read.

My sister is a teacher and she says that their school is still publishing papers for academic journals, magazines, and books. Students use e-book but there are still getting papers. I think some schools are still doing this even if the e-books exist.

The only time my articles was printed is when I was still in school. I'm not part of the school publication my occasionally my write-ups would sometimes show up. As it was easy for me to submit my work since there are few competitors way back in college unlike in the writing industry. Nowadays, my articles are posted online so that a lot of people could read my works.

My publications are sorely online. I have never attempted to write for any newspaper or magazine. This is an idea I can work.

I was able to make it in one issue of Reader's Digest last 2013. I felt really happy when I was notified through email that my work made it to one of their issues. That paved way in boosting my confidence in writing. I was just waiting for a "kickstart" if I will pursue a career or hobby in writing. The accepted work served as my "sign" as a writer. I joined the official publication of my university and I gave my pieces for four years. Now I am writer online and not on prints. Anyway, online is the new prints.

I really admire those who were able to publish their article in print. I never did this and never had a chance. Even when I was in school, I never joined any writing activity. But I hope that one day, I will be able to make it just like other writers here.

I feel the same way my friend. Actually in my school we had a journalist club which used to publish school magazines regularly and if I could go back I think I would be a part of them.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

superlicca

Same here. We also had a journalist club in school but I never joined them. I think I was not confident to join the club. I just read their journals and said that the writers were great. But If I could go back to my school days, I would definitely join the club.

Hahhaha you k ow it is always funny how a couple of years when we were very naive and silly define the rest of our lives. Like all the experiences we had as children determine what we will do in future and there is no going back and changing anything.

I think I feel the same thing as yours. I often think about how does it feel when your work is being published and you had a printed copy of it, well I'm talking about the book version or an article included in newspaper or magazine.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

superlicca

That is also my question. I wonder how it feels if your work will be read by many people. You might receive negative and positive feedback. But whatever feedback you receive, it is an honor to share your content with others.

I have two articles published with thrive global and I'm trying to get an article published in the huffington post. It was quite the process and not something I admit often. However I use both articles when I am bidding to a client for writing work. In general direct bidding is much harder work and you really need to prove yourself. Both articles go a long way towards doing this. I would encourage people to submit their work to be published. This is definitely good for your CV, off and online.

True true and congratulations for your quests in the writting industry. You definitely are so.eone who is worth for one to look up to. You ought to keep on keeping on in that path.

You are right with the CV that a published work is like a trophy that is proof of not only of your achievement but also your track record. I am keeping the hard copies of the magazine where my articles were published just in case I would need them for my job application in the future.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

mitan143

Wow. This is so much appreciated because you shared one of your experiences and achievements in writing as well as for inspiring us aspiring writers. You know, I love dogs and I also love reading different articles and blogs of them. Reading about dogs serves my stress reliever too because dogs are very interesting. My favorite topic on dogs is about huskies. But why did you stop writing an article for that magazine company?

I have written an article way back in highschool and got published on our high school magazine. My topic was about the issues concerning our school that time. Reading my article in print has given me an awesome feeling that triggers my love for writing.
I was inspired by your post and I hope that someday I will also be able to write for a magazine.

I bet it is awesome reading what your mind conceived and is now being taken in by numerous people. It is always difficult to get the chance to have an article published but I suggest that it is wise to take any that avails itself.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Youngshark

Well I have written a lot of content for numerous clients as a ghost writer but I certainly have no knowledge of where a majority of my content ends up. I sure do hope that I can come across some of them in print.

My only published article was way back in high school. Our school picks those who have a knack for writing and have writing competitions. Winners would have their work published in the school paper. Aside from that, I do not have any published work. If thesis papers in University is considered, then I could add that too.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Youngshark

Well this used to happen to the regional grouping of schools at the place I am from but never for an individual school. The selections are as such biased by the school heads who want their schools to have more fame and hence a majority of us never got that chance.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

mitan143

Wow. It didn't actually cross my mind about these. You're right, how about school events for writing and thesis paper. And speaking of school, in my school before there was actually newspaper which we called it school paper and it was edited by the students as well as the journalists are the students themselves too. All sorts of news within our school were being published in our school paper. It was also being distributed quarterly and all the students paid for it too.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Youngshark

All the best with your thesis my friend. I have come to learn that in many occassions if you do extraordinarily great work a lot of people will want to be connected with you. Also your work may be displayed as a means of genrating more market for you and a better outreach.

I have several! I've been published in newspapers and magazines as well as online, so I'm developing a decent portfolio. It's great though because I truly enjoy writing - it's a passion of mine - so it never feels like work like many of my previous jobs did!

I still don't have any printed articles of my own but I got inspired to push harder so that one day, you'll see my articles on magazines. I noticed how most of you treasure every printed article you had and consider yourself as the lucky ones. But I believe that it came from your hardwork and dedication and it paid off for you since you got your article printed. Hoping that someday I could get my article printed to!

It is all about the hard work and dedication that we always end up doing well when we are talking about getting things to work better for us as regards having printed works. You are definitely going to benefit in the long-run since those that read your articles offline may want you to be writing contents for them as well.

I really hope so. It is one pf my goals to have my article printed and read by many people. I am working really hard for it and spending time and effort for it. It is like a trophy for me when I got my article printed. I know it may take very long time to be able to be successful but I know someday, my chance will come and I will definitely grab it.

I've done some writing for clients but I don't know where exactly where those articles were published.

Maybe I have an article that has been printed in some magazine or could be I don't. However, I'm planning to once again start pitching ideas to editors in the near future, find out if they are willing to publish any of the articles I'll write.

p.s I once sent a query letter to the editor of a magazine which publishes horror stories asking them if they would serialize my story. He seemed interested but I hadn't written the story so I lost this opportunity.

A short feature article I wrote back in college was published in a broadsheet. It was a project in my Communication Arts subject (many, many years ago). The professor offered a special grade for anyone who could get an article published in print and I was challenged because I knew that she wasn't expecting anyone to do it. The article was not really spectacular or impressive but it discussed a timely political issue and the newspaper had a space for young writers. I submitted the article by mail and followed it up with the editor of that section. That was a long time ago and I didn't think much of it because for me, it was just a school project.

This is what most of us are doing as well. However, there is also a greater benefits of having to print some of your best stuffs for the people out there that may be very busy to search for them on the internet. It is one of the ways that you can remain relevant even in the offline segments.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

mitan143

I see. You actually made me realized some thoughts of the relevance of the printed one in the offline segments. I agree that there are actually a lot of benefits of having some of your works to be printed out and that's a great point there on your last sentence.

Most of my articles are for the web. I have an experience in writing a part of a book for an author not really sure if it was used for print or ebook. Even if it was used for print, I can no longer consider it as my article. The arrangement was when I submit it to them, I can no longer claim that it was me who wrote the article.

If talking about printed articles under my name, the last one that I can remember was when I was still in primary school where I was one of the editors of our school paper.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

I have only got a whole lot of contents that are on blogs and forums and none of them have been printed unless the owners of those blogs decided to do so without letting us know. One thing that I have come to notice is the need for most of us to keep doing the best when we write for there is a time when everything will work pretty fine for us at the end.

This definitely seems to be the way the world is going these days - some magazines that were popular in my country several years ago now don't even exist, I guess because there simply wasn't enough demand for them to keep being published.

Most of the writers today are mostly online. I myself don't have any notable articles in print and most of my works are only available online. People tend to do everything online because almost all the readers have also transitioned to reading online articles.

Years ago, I talked with somebody about ghost writing their story. The project didn't work out, as the guy with the story didn't have time to work with me enough to tell me the story in great enough detail.Even if you're not the one doing the actual writing, it can be a lot of work getting a ghost writer (what the person who writes your story which then gets labled with your name is frequently called) to do the job.Hope this helps. Also, considering the amount of time & effort that goes into editing a work before print, you might try taking a few writing courses & giving it a go yourself.

If you don't count HUBPages then I have only one article that's published and it was a surprise. It was about celebrities who studied abroad. A publication that circulates articles about improving education and higher education asked me if they could publish my article. I approved. I did not receive payment for it. But to have my article appear in a reputable publication is a value-add, just as good as money.

I really don't have any, I just published it online, like posting in the foeums or blogs online, I also reading articles online.

Sadly, I’ve never had an officially printed article, as everything I’ve written was mostly for online websites. Though I might not have anything printed professionally, I did write articles for my college newspaper. It isn’t much considering the content was only read by people who went to my university, but I suppose it’s a degree of success to reach even an audience such as that.

I’m thinking about looking into writing for my local newspaper if work gets thin online.

I know of two that were printed in an offline Christian magazine published in Nebraska and Wyoming. Then there were a few online places that used some poems and a story. My best claim to fame, however, is the very first. Inspired by my writing teacher, I asked "The American Window Cleaner's Journal" if they wanted a piece telling them as a child I thought God was the window cleaner. I think that was both on and off-line, but it was so far back my memory may serve me wrong. To my surprise, they accepted it and said they would pay for another article I never wrote,

Everything else has either been on my own blogs or articles for other people with no mention of my name. One day I will click on a website for something odd and surprise myself because I wrote the copy there.

I write many written context especially poems because It's my nature in accounting my point of view in life or even my experiences. I convey my feelings upon writing it in a piece of paper so that I can comfortably write and edit my poem. I have written a variety of written context.

On the other hand, I just keep it written by a ball point pen in a piece of paper and I haven't published even once in my work because for me I just need to keep it because I write for myself and for my children so that they can know the real story of how my life is.

Not really, I actually published my article through text on forums or blogs, but I haven't tried publishing it yet. I enjoy writing contents on forums or blogs around the internet and it makes me feel relax and also let me gain some knowledge by reading the content inside the forums or blogs.

I was able to have my article published in print. However, it was not as big as being part of a magazine. I was a writer for our school paper back in my college years, and that was fun and closer to my comfort zone. Though I had the experience, I know that I still lack in skills. Reading this gives me inspiration to continue on writing blogs and maybe one day, something like your experience would happen to me too.

No, I don't have any of my article published in print till now. I am a complete newcomer when it comes to the field of writing and I am just now trying my hand on everything that I find interesting. I think getting your article published in print must be a significant achievement for whoever does it. Maybe in the future, I may be able to do that but till then I am enjoying this magnificent journey of writing that I have started.

I envy you. That's such a great experience to have your writing published.

Isn't it strange/ The internet is so widespread, it reaches almost everyone in the world, but writing online, in blogs or information/ news websites that thousands of people see; still feels different when you have your article printed and published. You must have been thrilled. I have only managed to publish my writings when I was still a student. When I started working, I wasn't able to focus on writing. I just do blogging now and then. I wonder how it feels like to have a published copy of my work.
