|In the beginning of 2014, I made a goal to get published in art magazines. Starting with the end goal in mind, I knew the only way to get “discovered” was to submit the art myself to the magazines. I made submitting my art a priority in 2014.
Steps to getting your art published
The first step to getting published is to research the magazine’s deadlines and editors. Somerset Studio has many different publications specializing in different areas of art. Their online site has very clear guidelines on what they are looking for. Although they now accept digital submissions, I knew that sending them my physical journal would give it the best chance of getting it published.
I checked out the deadlines and then put one of the deadlines on my calendar. You can fuss with a journal forever, and giving me a deadline forced me to stick with a plan of submission.
Make your Art Stand Out
Before I shipped my art journal out, I decorated the package. I wasn’t sure if I was overdoing it but the editors loved it and included a photo of the package inside the magazine.
After they select you.
The magazine notified me by email that they would like to publish my art along with an article request. I was paid for the article and given just a week to draft my story.
