    Don't buy this book. Look for another one to get into magazine writing. Sending letters? We don't know how the internet will change the writing business? Getting paid for re-runs? Really?

    I've given up on my writing career and am going back to college to do a masters, but since no one reviewed this I thought I'd warn aspiring writers not to waste precious dollars by investing in this book.
