Monday's Market - Woman's World

Today's forecast for St. Peters: Mostly cloudy; high 41 degrees.

Woman's World is a market I've tried to break into without success, but I keep on trying. I've gotten a couple hand-written rejections from the fiction editor, which gives me hope. Who else but a writer would rejoice in getting a rejection letter?

Not only is it a good place to submit, the magazine is one I enjoy reading. My husband (who loves to cook) likes to read the articles about food and nutrition.

Humorous, but embarrassing story: The first time I submitted to them I misspelled the name of the magazine as Women's World. In my rejection letter, the editor put the correct name in bold letters. Since then I have a mental block and usually call it Women's World, so be sure and double-check before you submit to WOMAN'S WORLD.

  1. In wonder if they're one of the mags that prefer material from well-known writers?
    I always hate when that happens.

  3. I first submitted after a member of MWG talked about how she got published there, so I think the mag is open to different leves of writers. It's just that I can't seem to write what they're looking for, I guess.

    Hey, and I know what you mean about typpos. ;-)
