Your Home The best openings for new writers are with houses to profile. But do look at the magazine first. They want houses that are inspiring but accessible, and which feel like somebody lives there - real homes with children and pets. Always interested in house makeovers too, but again price is an issue because they want readers to think "Wow! I could do that." Before and after pictures required, the story of the makeover, and what it cost to do. Sue is also pleased to hear from real experts in any home interest field. Your Home regularly features writers who are already household names but if, for instance, you have written a book or you are a buyer in home furnishings, you could provide an authoritative angle on your subject. Write with specific ideas in the first instance.

x-sports Covers 'extreme sports'. 'There are specialist magazines for skateboarders, for boarders and for surfers, but there is no nationally distributed magazine that caters for the people who want a broad range of extreme sports,' explains publisher and co-editor Dan Bromage. 'We cover all these things on an international scale, talking to world champions and the best in the business. The worldwide element is particularly important for readers in the UK, who always have to travel to find good snow and big surf.' x-sports welcomes ideas from freelances with a background in extreme sports. These should be sent to Dan's co-editor Phil Boucher who will be taking over the helm in the coming months. Unsolicited manuscripts and photographs will not be returned.
