Check out this week’s updates to Tin Shingle’s exclusive Editorial Calendar Collection! Included are the topics put forth by the magazines themselves as well as Tin Shingle’s predictions of future editorial themes up to 2020.

Don’t pigeon-hole yourself into a theme, but use it as a guide if it helps. For late 2019 and 2020, we researched the past 2 years to find editorial consistency and made predictions where possible. However, the most important tool you have access to is the publication and submission date through 2020. You can quickly see where a magazine is in their production cycle, to know what kind of timely story angle to pitch them.
