    •    which sections are open to freelancers
    •    the length of each section
    •    the tone, format, style, and structure of each section
    •    examples of what has been covered previously in each section
    •    which regular contributors pen recurring columns
    •    the magazine’s target readership traits
    •    the percentage of travel-related content in each issue
    •    where to read full issues online
    •    editors’ email addresses
