The Right Time To Write Something!

Novels and home learning books have become as popular as seldom before, being one of the unexpected side-effects of the pandemic. Sales of fiction have risen over 35%, while children's education books went up 230% for quite some time.

But not only more books are read, the same applies for newspapers and magazines. The reason for it is easy to understand. Home office, new working schedules, the partly "slower" speed of daily life, isolation from friends and other leisure activities, social distance and so forth, have made it possible for a lot of people to read much more. 

So while MFN INTERNATIONAL was first concerned about the impact the world-wide pandemic would have on the publication, we now see that our worries luckily did not come true. The editorial office has even more articles being sent in. On top of that, the amount of advertisement stayed just about the same, even slightly increasing. Of course, that is also based on the fact that over 90% of our advertisers have been with MFN for many years.   
MFN always welcomes new authors. On one hand because, being an international magazine that is read in nearly 70 countries, we like to have input from all regions all over the world. On the other hand, having contributions from a larger number of authors insures a greater diversity of topics and keeps a "healthy" neutrality in terms of opinions published. 

So for those who have the skills and the means as far as writing concerns, maybe now is the time to take the chance and prepare a technical article and mail it to us. If the quality and topic is suitable, we will be pleased to publish it free-of-charge. 

A technical write-up is an excellent marketing tool. It is not only very informative for our readers, but also underlines the expertise in a particular field or introduces a project or achievement that is worthwhile in finding publication. 

So, in any case, there is nothing to lose in trying it! We promise to give feedback on every article that is mailed to our editorial office.
