First Feature Article Published


Saltscapes, Mar/Apr 2009

A bit of a brag today. I just had my first feature article published in a mainstream magazine. I’m previously published in hobby magazines, but this is the first non-philatelic article published for me. It’s very satisfying to see one’s hard work in print. I say hard work, but in actuality it was fun for me.

The magazine is Saltscapes, March/April 2009 Issue. This is a lifestyle magazine published in Bedford, Nova Scotia. The photo is of the cover of the current issue. The editor, Heather White, was fantastic to work with. She really believed in the article. The title of the article and it’s description is,

“The Invisible Immigrants: One Home Child’s Story”

“Like many immigrants, home children came to Canada to bave a better life. They left a legacy, but not necessarily a history. Here is one home child’s story.”

The magazine’s website is,

So now it’s back to work on the writing to have more articles published. Thank goodness I seem to have lots of ideas.

    It’s also nice to hear that some editors are more open to considering good writing on blogs when they make their decisions about article selection.
