Straight From The Horse's Mouth: What Editors Want

I recently had a couple of pints with an editor of mine who happened to be passing through London. I've been working with him for a few years now and it was nice to finally put a face to a name. As we talked about the magazine, he made a comment that really struck me as good advice for writers of all levels.

"Writers pitch me subjects all the time, but what they really need to do is pitch me stories."

Something to remember.

Hi Sean,
Sounds like good advice to me.

Looking for more from Sean McLachlan? He also hangs out on the Civil War Horror blog, where he focuses on Civil War and Wild West history.

You can also find him on his Twitter feed and Facebook page.
