Weeelllll, this isn’t as easy a question as you’d think. Much simply depends on the magazine. Some only want excerpts from novels slated to be published, many only want excerpts that stand alone, meaning the reader still gets something of a beginning, middle, and end, even without reading the novel, and some only want excerpts from established writers.

This is really a case of read the guidelines carefully, and, as always, try to read issues of the magazine to see exactly what they have published.
