#16 How to Submit a Crochet Pattern to Magazine Publications

All it takes is the right inspiration and motivation to persevere.

In today’s world hitting publish on an original piece of work is as easy as typing it up and clicking publish. We can publish anything anytime we want with the apps on our phones. But what about traditional print? Seems like a lost artform in this era and that’s what makes it so special. The barrier to entry on traditionally published work is infinitely more complex than digital. Not that I’m putting down digital print, it’s a great way to reach millions, but the allure of traditional print draws us in.

Have you ever thought how “published crochet designer” would sound rolling off the tongue when someone asks what you do? Having a design featured in a magazine or book takes the right amount of research, the right design, the right publication and a lot of time, and with the right motivation there’s no reason to think why this can’t be you.
