Subject: [scbwi-houston] New editing job
Okay, my good news is finally official!
I am now a magazine editor. The name is Ad Astra, the quarterly magazine of
the National Space Society. Those of you who know what a space enthusiast I
am will understand what a good fit this is for me. I have been a technical
editor for several publishers for years and a newsletter editor before that,
but this is the first time I've had the authority and responsibility of
assigning articles for a paying market. It is a bit intimidating, but also a
lot of fun. If you're interested in writing for the magazine, we pay 25 c/w,
and I'm open to queries (but wait a few weeks--this issue is already full,
and we won't start the next one until mid-February). Guidelines are on the
website. After this initial issue is put to bed later this month, I hope to
make time for a little more writing for kids. I don't know how all of you
with "day jobs" manage to get so much done! Maybe you can tell me your
secrets during lunch at the SCBWI conference next month. See you all there.
