Questions On Working @ Fashion Magazines!

Hello,

I think it would be really cool to write for a fashion magazine or fashion website. Does anyone have any tips on how I can achieve my goal? If you know of fashion anywhere that accept writers for print or online that would be really helpful!

Anyone with suggestions/ tips/ advice or experience please don't hesitate to drop me a line!

Big thanks in advance,

GlamGal

Hey GlamGal, working at a magazine is my dream too. And if j-school has taught me anything, what you really need is experience.
Also BeautyEditor had some great advice on becoming a beauty editor, but I'm sure it applies to the fashion world as well.

Tasha, that was a great link you just posted. I particularly would agree with "pitch pitch pitch"
I feel like this industry is all about your networking skills!

Try out Flare, or Elle! I also heard Teen Vogue is looking for summer internships as well. Probably best if next year, you start a bit earlier (Maybe March --> April ish?)

I've attended seminars and workshops in writing resumes, maybe I can help you with developing a more professional portfolio? I'm no expert or anything, of course, but I always found that having other people look at your work is helpful.
