It’s great to be able to write and maybe even find a specific niche and audience that you enjoy writing for. My niche is writing, and I love it, but it’s also important to remember why you’re here.

If you want your stories to be read, you want to be able to give them as much visibility as possible.

But can you honestly do that, if you write, with only a specific publication in mind? Not always. In fact, you could run the risk of limiting your overall readership.

Don’t get me wrong; it’s okay to write for the audience that a publication caters to, but do it in a way that your story has universal appeal, and can fit into other, similar publications. Don’t allow yourself to get so set on just one.


Here’s a little publication tip to keep in mind about submitting.

Some publications may be geographically located on the other side of the world from where you are. This will usually affect their publication schedule. This should be considered when selecting and submitting to publications.
