Back in March I got in contact with a local magazine called The Edge. It was first established in 1996 and has a readership of about 10k. The magazine is mainly based in the city of Chelmsford, Essex, in England, and covers local news, humour and current affairs along with advertising local businesses. The magazine is available in online via email or in hard copy in and around the city.
I wrote a small article about growing up at Moulsham Mill and sent it in. After exchanging a few emails with the editor about a follow-up I heard no more. After receiving a couple of online copies of the magazine, and not finding my article, yesterday I contacted the editor only to find out it had been published in April. He then sent me a photo of my article and said he would put a copy in the post to me.
After chatting on Whatsapp, he asked about the follow-up article which I sent him. As it was just 500 words it didn’t take long to put together. Though, overall the magazine does call for humorous articles so I don’t think I’m really a suitable writer for The Edge.
I’m just happy to have had one article published in the magazine, and hopefully someone read it and enjoyed learning a bit about the old mill.
Have a great day,
