10 Trade Journals Accepting Submissions

As I’ve said many times before, writing for periodicals is a terrific way to hone your writing skills and earn money as you do it. If you’ve never considered this, stop and read “Why Write for Periodicals?” by the prolific writer Ava Pennington.

Today I’m featuring trade journals, publications that focus on a specific occupation or industry. Many of us who are now writers didn’t start our work lives as writers. I’m sure you have work experience you can put to good use by writing for trade journals in your field.
