Issue 03! Ahh! IT IS TIIIME.
And we need some savvy writers to contribute some of our advice articles! This is a great way to get your name in the mag, and an excellent nonfiction publication credit to put on your resume!
This issue, we’ve created a “Topic Bucket”, below, based on topics that are missing or underrepresented on Yeah Write’s Advice page. These are just suggested topics, but writers can pitch their own, too.
If you’re interested in writing an advice article, send Yeah Write an ask with your email address. We’ll email you our Advice Writer Guide, which will tell you everything you need to know about writing with us. This doesn’t bind you to writing an article, it just shares the next steps (via a lovely PDF).
The nitty gritty: Final articles will be due April 12, but there will be a couple of draft/edit deadlines between now and then. Articles are between 1000 and 1500 words long. Also, working with us is really fun.
Again, if you’re interested in writing an advice article, send Yeah Write an ask with your email address and we’ll send you more information about the process.
Potential Fiction Topics:
- Representing races and/or cultures other than your own
- How to gauge whether you’ve spent too much or too little time on setting
A general overview of magical realism as a genre (mostly how it differs from fantasy) Assigned
- The difference between narrative mode (and a description of each sub type—ie the difference between omniscient and close third) and point of view
- How to write a fight/first meeting/
breakup Assigned/party/concert/etc. scene (take your pick!)
- An exploration of any niche genre would be cool (so far on Yeah Write the only one we’ve discussed is Survival Horror. If more than one writer wanted to do one of these, it’s fine as long as they’re different genres!) Assigned: Gothic Fiction.
- Writing semi-autobiographical fiction
- Turning real people into characters
- The dilemma of representing time and chronology when trying to construct real events into a narrative
- Telling a story using poetic form (ie epic poetry)
- …I know very little about poetry so basically anything you can think of, I’m good with, haha
