Tear Sheet


Definition: Publication editors may send a tear sheet to freelance writers that are published in a magazine's issue. It is the specific pages of the magazine that your article appears on, carefully cut from an issue and sent to you. More commonly, you will instead be sent an entire courtesy copy (or sometimes more than one). Tear sheets are also sent to advertisers to show that their ad was published.
Common Misspellings: tearsheet
Once I get my tear sheet in the mail, I will add the article to my portfolio.
