RMS TitanicImages - Collier's Magazine
This periodical has a wide circulation, based on informative value and timeliness. A large number of its readers are men, and a corresponding breadth of viewpoint is desirable.
Uses articles of news-interest on public men and world-events, preferably illustrated. For short fiction the editorial department reports that Collier’s is going to make a specialty of short-stories and articles of from 2000 to 5000 words in length.
Collier’s first idea is to overcome the “run-over”—that is, the continuation of stories and articles from the fore part of the magazine to advertising pages farther back, and the second idea is to get a large number of features into each issue. The use of shorter stories and articles will make necessary live stories and vivid sketches of life, running from 760 to 1500 words.
