How to get published in a Magazine!

I'm all about setting a goal, reaching it, and then setting another one!

My next goal is to get published in at least one magazine that is focused on either handmade or business/entrepreneurship by the end of the year. I've been researching magazines, and I've come across a few that won't work for me, but might be really good opportunities for my readers! Here are two magazines that are looking for art submissions in specific categories for future articles:
