Society will continue to debate the extent to which men and women fundamentally differ. But I don’t think anyone disputes the claim that there are fundamental differences between men’s and women’s magazines. Women’s magazines, for instance, feature perfume-scented inserts and headlines like ’14 Amish Sex Secrets Revealed!!!’ Whereas men’s magazines focus on articles about new wristwatches that will help you climb to the summit of Mount Everest and pick up girls there.
Anyway, to help you, the freelance journalist, navigate this thicket, our blog-ployer mediabistro.com is offering a seminar tonight called
‘How to Write for Men’s and Women’s Magazines.’ The instructor, Jonathan Small, has worked on both sides of the gender gap and will tell you how to pitch and write for either or both. (And to pre-empt any emails, yes, you can ask him about transgendered magazine writing as well.)
It’s tonight, it’s inexpensive, and it could change your life. Info here.
