I’m looking for freelance writers who have landed assignments in or sold articles on spec to national publications in the last two years and who have used one more of the following techniques to pitch or complete the assignment:
Proposed a short piece or filler
Pitched a personal interest story, dramatic personal story or “as told to” story
Pitched a travel article tied to a vacation
Pitched a travel article tied to a destination, attraction or event close to home
Conducted a preliminary interview and mentioned it in the query
Turned in an article well in advance of the deadline
Queried well in advance for seasonal or time-sensitive articles
Submitted an article on spec
Queried with clips
I’m also interested in your best tips for landing that first big assignment.
If you’re interested, please send me a brief description of your articles, a link to your website or links to available clips plus your full name, age, city/state, phone, email.
Feel free to email me with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
