A magazine’s relationship with its writers is one of its most important, since the quality of its articles depends on the quality of its writers. However, not all articles submitted will meet the requirements of the magazine and it may be necessary to request that the author rewrite the article. An article should be rewritten when the idea, approach, and content are good, but there are major flaws that keep the article from achieving its purpose. Handle the request sensitively to maintain a good relationship with the writer.
