Plenty of Freelance Writing opportunities



Editorially, The Cattleman covers all aspects of the beef
industry in Texas, Oklahoma and the Southwest. In the most
recent readership survey, subscribers said they were most
interested in the following topics in this order: range/
pasture, property rights, animal health, water, new innovations
and marketing. Our feature stories are generally more in-depth
than other livestock publications. Word counts average between
1,500 to 2,000. Pays up to $450 for articles up to 2,000 words.

Published biweekly, Community College Week’s readers include
college presidents, chief academic officers, faculty, student-
service professionals, librarians and other educators. In
each edition, our readers find news and features not provided
by other news sources, including analyses of critical academic
trends and issues, vital statistics, technology updates and
employment opportunities. Very nice guidelines with many
columns open to freelancers.

We want features to have entry points. As we use it, the term
includes sidebars and extended captions designed to bring in
a reader not enticed by the main subject. For a 2,500-word piece,
perhaps 1,800 words would be devoted to the main body, and the
rest divided into three sidebar-type sections. Topics include
nature and the environment, regional culture, personalities,
the arts (visual, performing, literary), crafts, food & dining,
homes and cottages, history, outdoor activities (e.g., fishing,
golf, skiing, boating, biking, hiking, birding, gardening).
One-time right to publish in our magazines and right to publish
on our web site. Fees: $200-$700. Articles work best for us at
1,500 to 3,000 words. Departments are limited to 700 words.

The mission is to inspire teen girls to pursue their dreams
with confidence and to teach them to be an example for others
in their speech, life, love, faith and purity. Topics include
design, entertainment, the future in terms of college and jobs,
beauty, faith, life, quizzes. Average article is between 650
and 1,600 words in length although longer work will be considered.
Sidebar information is also encouraged, as well as graphics,
including illustrations, and photographs.
