Thank you for your interest in writing for Crochet Getaway (www.crochetgetaway.com). Crochet Getaway was launched on March 12, 2015. As we move into Year 8, I am looking for freelance writers to assist with content.
I’m currently accepting short articles (400 – 600 words) about:
Crochet events – anywhere and everywhere – seminars, cruises, and even local classes. Let’s fill the site with information and promote the wonderful world of crochet.
Fall festivals – I’m looking for some feet on the street at seasonal festivals. These articles should include a short background on the event, some details about how the event relates to crochet (sheep to shawl reviews, for example), and some practical information for attendees (If You Go) material. At least 30% of the article should be directly related to crochet.
General Guidelines for Writers:
Article submissions must be your original work and not published elsewhere. I will work with you on any necessary edits. I reserve the right to reject any article that is not a good fit for the 1,400+ Crochet Getaway blog and Facebook subscribers. I also reserve the right to remove articles from the website for any reason, including a change of content direction or timeliness/relevance of event or location coverage.
To Submit a Story Idea:
Send me a query via email at email@example.com to ensure that another article is not already scheduled for the same event coverage. In a few sentences, provide a brief description of your article or the “getaway” that you will write about, proposed word count, photo availability, and expected timeline for submission.
Payment: Crochet Getaway pays $25 for first electronic rights for a minimum of six months after the publication date. A typical article will be 400-600 words with 2-3 photos. Payments will be processed via PayPal upon publication.
To Submit Your Completed Article (after your query has been approved)
- Send your article to me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
- Provide a link to high-resolution photos in a Dropbox gallery or another URL where images can be viewed and downloaded for publication.
- Include your name as you would like it to appear on the site’s byline.
- Provide your Paypal email address for payment processing.
Thank You, and I look forward to working together!
