Abstract: The reader is led through every stage of writing law enforcement articles for magazines and journals and sending them to the right people for the publishing of the article. First-time writers can use this booklet as a valuable step- by-step guide. The topics focus on getting started, the use of query letters, the writing of the article, "typing" equipment, photographs, the submission of the manuscript, and rewrites and rejections. More experienced writers will find great value in the guide's detailed list of 16 law enforcement magazines and journals, including the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of contact people and editors. A list of writer's resources is also included. Pay and other remuneration are also discussed. Included are a sample of writers' guidelines and an order form for writers' resources.
