WANT TO BE A HACKWORLD TRAVELWRITER?
GAP YEAR AND WORLD TRAVELLERS -- BUILD A PORTFOLIO HERE
TOO CAN BECOME A TRAVEL WRITER
We are offering an innovative service for all world travellers:
post your monthly articles back to us at Hackwriters and join our growing
band of travel writers.
Every month (a minimum requirement) you must get the article to us (exclusively)
by email. It should be 800-1500 words. If you want photos to accompany
your article, send them to us as well (as a jpeg attachment if possible).
We will publish your work on Hackwriters (This is of course subject
to editorial policy: we reserve the right to edit, adapt, abbreviate.)
This will be your living travel writer showcase portfolio. You'll have
12 months of being able to post articles on Hackwriters (you can send
more than 12 if you wish). You'll get some feedback, as well as links
to potential clients who might actually pay real money for the piece.
We retain reprint rights (for a potential printed anthology of the Best
TRAVEL WRITERS OF THE YEAR 2001
Your email address can be on each piece, so readers and fellow travellers
can get in touch, but you can leave it off if you want to be left in
peace. If you have a sponsor, then your sponsor's banner can appear
-- with a link back to them -- at the head of every article you post.
(Please include their website details if this is the case.)
This is a pretty good deal: you'll have a regular commitment to write,
a regular readership and a way of letting Ma know what you
are up to (er, on second thoughts...) It'll be a fantastic showcase
for your writing, and a great record of your travels.
One year Helen Gilchrist was in New Zealand for Hackwriters, Jo Plumridge
is in Botswana, and we have two new "around the worlders"
about to start. Why not join them?
