I met Lisa Mowry several years ago when I lived in Atlanta and she helped me get published. She is a great person to ask about getting published because she works with multiple magazines. In the 27 years she has worked for home & garden magazines, Lisa has produced more than 1,000 features for national and local magazines.

Lisa also serves as the homes editor for Atlanta Magazine’s HOME and has been a contributing writer for Atlanta Magazine for 20 years.
Her many other writing credits include Southern Living, Woman’s Day, Styleblueprint, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and Metropolitan Home. So you can understand why I asked her to help answer your "how to get published" questions.
