Magazine and Ezine Articles
Whereas news articles focus on delivering facts, in magazines the emphasis is on engaging the reader. As a result, a feature writer needs to be capable of not only research, but also of weaving information into an entertaining story.
- "How Society Supports Low-Paying Writing Jobs"
My article in the popular ezine Writers Weekly explores the relationship between society’s attitude toward writers and the prevalence of low-paying writing jobs.
- "Dazzled by Disney: Disney Inspired Character Dolls in the 1950s"
An avid doll collector, I frequently write articles as an expert on the topic. This feature, which ran in the January 2007 issue of Toy Shop, illustrates my expertise on the subject.
- "Miscellany Antiques: Restoring Childhood Memories One Doll at a Time"
My article on a local doll hospital appeared in the June 2006 edition of Toy Shop, providing another example of my work in this niche.
- "Tips for Purchasing a New Car"
This article in Savvy Miss demonstrates another of my areas of expertise: cars.
- "Taking It Personally: Finding the Will to Lose Weight"
Women’s health and beauty magazines are among the most widely read publications.
- "Your Thyroid IQ: Understanding Thyroid Disease"
This health-focused article from the May 2006 edition of Greater Birmingham Hair & Beauty provides another example of my writing for traditional women’s magazines.
