1.Â Sidelines Magazine: For Horse People, About Horse People: Vonda here: I’m at the Novelist Retreat at Ridgecrest this week and have had the joy of meeting Jan Westmark, Editor-in-Chief of Sidelines Magazine. I’m thrilled that she agreed to let me share her writing guidelines with you. I know we have some horse people out there. Please follow the guidelines carefully!Here are her instructions:
My magazine is geared toward the English riding market – the high end rider. We are not a how-to magazine, but a feature magazine – so all of our stories are profiles on riders, horses and horse rescue organizations. We cover hunters, jumpers, dressage, eventing, polo and foxhunting. It is a very specialized market – but if you have writers that would like to write for me, they can email me. I can even assign stories!!
- Write 400-500 words
- Be a guest blogger with links to your website
- Speak peace into lives during this busy time of year
