In this TuneUp, we work straight from Tin Shingle's 2017 Blog Planning and Production Calendar to help you get connected with trends happening in the month of January. Like, did you know that it's National Strawberry Ice-cream Day and National Cuddle Up Day all in one month!? Short lead is all about organization right now, and "New Year, New You" themes.
Editorial Calendar Correspondent Ashley Broussard reveals what the magazines are working on months out - what you need to be pitching in January if you want in. For example, did you know that the editors at Domino Magazine are working on an issue dedicated to Entertaining and Travel right now? Or that Ebony Magazine may still have Mother's Day Gift Guide opportunities, and a theme on Haute Hair? Fast Company is looking for "World Changing Ideas" - got any?
How do we know this? We check Tin Shingle's private, member-only database of Editorial Calendars that magazines publish to give the public clues about what they are working on, in order to get the most on-target submissions. We have 45 editorial calendars right now - and counting! Join Tin Shingle to access right away.
