Ever wanted to publish an article in MSDN Magazine? If so, here's what you need to know.
First, send us your idea: our submissions email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Make the Subject Line of the email "MSDN Article Query". As part of that email, we'll need the following information:
Typical article length is between 2,500 and 4,000 words (not including code samples). We’ll make every effort to review your proposal and give you an answer in a timely manner, but we don't guarantee a response within a specific timeframe. If you've submitted a query, however, and haven't heard back in a few weeks, by all means send a follow-up email asking about it.
Some articles have a greater chance than others of being published. Here are some ways to increase your chances of having your proposal accepted.
As you can see, getting published in MSDN Magazine is no easy thing. But it can be rewarding, for those with good ideas, some writing talent, and the desire to work hard with the editorial staff to shine their articles to a high gloss. If you're interested, we'd love to hear from you.
