First, your question is too broad. She wants to be in a magazine? Fine, buy some ad space, put her picture in the ad, she's in the magazine. Hell, why stop at Maxim, she could be in Vogue doing that. (Now you know why we pay so little attention to models and photographers who pump their résumé's using vanity ad placement.)

If you are asking about editorial placement (story illustration) forget Maxim, unless she's already know for something else (minor TV or Movie actress primarily), it ain't gonna happen. Just look at who is in magazines of this genre and you'll see what I mean. (Wanna be a Victoria's Secret model? First become a very famous fashion model, you might have half a shot if you're really put together and are already very, very famous.) Of course she can always send a pretty picture to the Hometown Hottie thing and hope she gets a thumbnail printed.

Now, if she really wants to be in magazines, has lots of patience and a great look, she can list with the better agencies in your area (try Benz Models, etc.) and hope for the best. Or, you can contact a few of the local magazines in your area and see if you can do a story submission and include a picture of her in it. Unless you are a contract photographer for a magazine, your job is to take pictures, it's an agent's job to obtain editorial placement for a model.

Talking to your local magazines is a good idea for you as a photographer under any circumstances, if a model drives you to do it, you won't be the first.
