When you wrote that first piece, did you just choose a subject that you were interested in?

Nonfiction is easier to break into than fiction, hands down. I encourage you to NOT be discouraged  Grin. The first piece I ever had accepted for publication was a nonfiction kids article about the pony express. It had actually started as an ICL assignment. I wasn't an expert by any means. I did lots of research, wrote a fun piece, and eventually sent it to a handful of magazines (including e-zines). It was accepted by an e-zine. Not all magazines ask for clips (in fact, lots don't). Don't let this frighten you away from writing nonfiction altogether. Once I had a few NF pieces published, THEN I had some clips to send out. Also, when I started sending packets to educational publishers, I didn't even use my published pieces as samples. I sent in unpublished samples of my work. Don't dishearten!

Okay, I read over some of the nonfiction info, and I'm more than a little intimidated. Is getting nonfiction published even harder than fiction? Educational publishers seem to want a resume, and magazines want clips. If you don't have any experience that makes you qualified, do you have a chance? Is there a good place to start?

I hear the farm nazi now (think "Seinfeld"): "No wheat for YOU!"
