This is the fourth post in the series How to Get Published in a Craft Magazine. In the previous post I provided information to help you assess the investment aspect of this pursuit and today I will provide information regarding the return.
How much a magazine pays for a project (finished design and step-by-step instructions) varies. The range is anywhere from zero to around three hundred and twenty five dollars. After reading the first four post in the series, you should have enough information to help you make an informed decision.
Over the course of time, my view of being a published designer has changed. Originally, I thought being published was the end goal. However, I now think of it as a tool to achieve another goal. Getting published in a magazines or getting a book deal is a great way to establish your credibility. This credibility can help you achieve other goals like becoming a craft teacher or in selling your crafts.
In a future post I will share information to help improve your chances of getting published.
