Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Indian Journals which i can approach?

Hi there,
I am a tarot card reader and a wiccan…I would like to do predictions,column write on certain topics related to this…But i don’t know which indian magazines or newspapers i should approach.
Any help?
Thank you…

Answer by Mackenzie
First, I would ask, out of curiosity or maybe for your consideration, why are you seeking an Indian magazine? Most Indian spiritual magazines would probably be directed at Hindus or Muslims, and probably wouldn’t have much interest in a Christian divination system and Western/European Pagan religion.

You might find your are better off seeking a magazine catering to more of a Pagan or New Age community. Just saying, since it’s hard enough to find a column at all, let alone one in spiritual practices.

Second, do you know anything about writing for magazines or newspapers? If not, I suggest you begin by studying the business of writing.

It’s pretty hard to get a magazine column, you should know first off. Usually you have to :

1) have superb writing skills (get some clips together)

2) have experience in your field (what are your qualifications for the Tarot? Being Wiccan would really have nothing to do with writing a divination column since Wicca is a religion and doesn’t automatically make you a psychic– but why would they want you? Are you well respected in your field? Do you have a book out? Did Oprah interview you? Etc.).

3) find a magazine looking for a columnist in your area of expertise– that’s probably the hardest part, as such gigs are not that common, and competition for them is very fierce.

If you have never or rarely read the Tarot or psychic readings professionally and you’re not noted in your field, or if you’ve never written professionally, it’s not likely you’ll be considered as a columnist. Magazines or newspapers might be willing to publish some of your unsolicited submissions as a freelancer, and that might (rarely) lead to a column. But normally before they hire someone as a columnist they want someone who is somewhat notable in the field or they at least want someone qualified in the field who has experience/degrees in the publishing industry so they can have some assurance that your writing will be consistent, fresh, in line with their needs and voice, and that they can rely on you to meet their guidelines.

If you have many years of training and experience in the Tarot professionally on your resume, if you’ve written books or been on talk shows, etc. you will have a better chance pitching your ideas for a column. If not, then it’s even more important that you establish a writing career if you ever hope to get a column.

To find publications and their submission guidelines, the main resources you should look to are the Writer’s Digest (an annual publication in your library’s reference section, or you can go to http://www.writersdigest.com/ and get a subscription). You can also check magazines like the Writer’s Market and Publisher’s Weekly.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : I have a interview with a talent agent a acting and modeling agent what question willshe ask me?

also what should i have prepared for her she is legit i check her out on the bbb

Answer by goldylocks_candy
When I went to one, they asked me my height, my dress/clothing size, how much you weigh, maybe your messurments. I think if you are going for the talent part, they may make you read a little script like a commercial style one. Thats what happened to me. Just whatever you do, be Confident! Don’t show signs of weakness. But don;t be cocky. be yourself 🙂
Good Luck!

my agent www.hutsontalentagency.com ask my every like your favorites shows and stuff like that and course she ask weight measment any classes read monologue

Answer by Theatre Doc
How did you get this interview? If you answered an ad on the radio or was contacted in the mall, WATCH OUT! These things are often scams to get you to sign up for acting and modeling classes. So if she asks you for money or to buy lessons or anything like that, say, “No Thanks” and leave because it is a SCAM. Write and tell me the name of the company and I will be able to tell because even if they are ok with the BBB, it doesn’t mean they are totally legit. What is ok for business is sometimes not ok for acting.

If she is legit, she will ask you to tell her about yourself. Write a little autopbiography and memorize it to tell her. She will ask what casting directors know you? If there are none, you probably are not ready for representation. She will ask, what have you done lately? If you haven’t done anything, you are not ready for an agent. She will ask, with whom are you currently studying? If you aren’t, you aren’t ready for an agent.

Answer by ihateinternetdating
Uh, the legitmate ones don’t interview you… they review your work and offer to be your agent at a commission of your income. It is EXTREMELY hard to get on a talent agent’s roster, they are bombarded with people wanting them to represent them.

I’m sorry, I smell a scam. If they want ANY money from you whatsoever, photo costs, headshots, etc etc, it’s not legitimate. Don’t give them a nickle.

Answer by Tony
Wow.

There’s so much to say. I’ll just give you some small tips and one big one.

First: Know how to answer the question, “How do you see yourself?” That question could have different variations such as, “What do you think your type is?” or “How would you describe yourself as an actor?” In any case you should first of all know the answers to those questions and secondly, you should know how to answer them in a quick, short and concise way, without blinking an eye.

Second small tip: do some homework about the agency. Find out as much as you can about it. About her/him. About other agents who work there. Know her/his name!!! Know his/her background if you can find it out and use that information wisely at times throughout the interview. Know if they have any big names signed and who they are.

Ask how many clients they have.
Ask how often you can expect to be sent out on auditions.
Ask how many other actors they have that are the same type as you.
Ask what his/her preferred way of keeping in touch is, i.e. post cards, phone calls, e-mail, etc.
Gosh, there’s so much to say, but it would take a while.
Know the questions you want to ask him/her. Find some other actors to talk to and ask them for some advice. Experienced actors!

The big tip, huge tip? Go out and buy Brian O’Neil’s book Acting As A Business: Strategies For Success. It’s one of the most read books by actors looking to FINALLY start understanding that if you have a strategy, you’re more likely to be successful. It’s one of the books I recommend on my site as well: http://www.actingcareerstartup.com/acting_books.html

At this point, I wouldn’t go out and rush to get a headshot. The agent will know that you are young and don’t have much experience. If she’s interested in you, she will tell you what you need to do.

Don’t pay any money, no matter what he/she tells you! The rate should be 10% AFTER you get a job.
Don’t go to a headshot photographer that he/she recommends.

Finally, know as much as you can about what it means to be an actor, about the industry, acting techniques. Go to my website for new actors and download a free ebook, that will give you some more ideas about things you should know. It’s called What It Takes To Become An Actor. Just go to http://www.actingcareerstartup.com , sign in on the right side of the page and you can download the ebook for free.

Hope I’ve been helpful!
Good luck and remember, that even if you do get an agent, you can have more than one if they don’t ask for exclusivity, so keep looking. Secondly and most importantly, even if you do get the agent, your efforts to try and get work are just beginning! You need to be super active TOGETHER WITH an at the same time the agent is sending you out on auditions. Take control of your own career and don’t put it all in the hands of someone else! It’s your career. It’s your responsbility!

Good luck!

This is what a top-level agent had to say about this question:

“The process is simple. First, I always meet one on one with potential clients. This gives me a chance to really get to know the person. If that goes well, I ask the actor to come back and meet the other agents. It’s essential that everyone be in agreement. One agent should never try to convince the others to sign someone.

And that’s basically it. The only problem is actors tend to be their own worst enemy. Believe it or not, actors seeking representation are always convincing me NOT to sign them. Pretty depressing, right?

I’m always amazed by how much effort actors put into getting a meeting with me but none of you ever know how to behave once you’re actually in my office.

Before we tackle this subject, let’s make something clear. I want to like you. It’s my job to sign actors and if you’re sitting in my office, that means you did something right. Maybe I noticed your submission. Maybe someone referred you. Or maybe I saw your work in a showcase. Whatever it was, something positive happened to get your butt into that chair. So don’t turn a positive into a negative. You’ve got 15 minutes to make an impression. That’s 900 seconds. You have to use that time wisely.

So how should you behave in my office? Well, think of it this way. Meeting with an agent is like a first date. You’ve got two people in a room. They’re sizing each other up. And they’re both wondering if it’s going to go any further.

Now ask yourself this: what’s the worst thing you can do on a first date?

Answer: Talk about yourself.

There’s nothing worse than being stuck on a date with someone who spends the whole night going on and on about themselves. It’s the same thing in a meeting. I tend to tune out actors who waste their time by doing a non-stop monologue about who they are and what they want.

So don’t play into the stereotype of the narcissistic, self-involved actor. It’s dull. It’s boring. And worst of all, it doesn’t give me a chance to really get to know you.

Instead, walk into that office and create an atmosphere where you can both get to know each other as people. I have to forget that you’re an actor seeking representation. That’s boring. Instead, I need to see you as an individual. I have to get a sense of who you really are outside the world of show business.

How do you do this? Easy. Try to have a normal conversation. Maybe there’s something in my office that catches your eye. Or maybe you just saw a great movie. Whatever. The idea is to get into a give and take situation where you’re talking about anything but acting. This will give me a chance to get to know the real you.

I once met with a young lady who had “tarot card reader” listed on her resume under Special Skills. It just so happens that I love anything having to do with the occult. So we started talking about it and the next thing you know, we’re both sitting on the floor and she’s giving me a reading. As a result, we really got to know each other and I ended up representing her for many years.

Now that’s what I call a good meeting.

Remember – it’s easy for an agent to pass on an actor seeking representation. We do it every day. But saying no becomes just a little bit harder when we’ve spent 15 minutes getting to know you as a human being. And that might just be enough to get you signed as a client.”

How to Do a Basic Tarot Reading

Written by ClairvoyantConni

Since the age of 2 I have had encounters and a personal relationship with loved ones crossed. In my opinion there are no better friends you can have. They are honest, without the capacity to hold ego or materialistic views and always give you accurate information to help you through whatever you are going through. They have the ability to see the past, present and future without judgement. Their accuracy is uncanny.

Having the gift of sight, hearing, sensing, smelling and tasting as well as empathy and the gift of communicating with spirit, gives me the ability to accurately read you without judgement.

Spirit has entrusted me with these gifts to help you in all areas of your life. It has been an exciting journey. This gift is generational and my grandmother and father both had the gift as well as my children.

I have assisted over 15,598 people online in the last 9 years alone. I have thousands of other clients as well. This is what I dedicate my life to as I know it is my life calling.
