The typical freelance writing process involves coming up with an idea and then querying a magazine, ezine or other publication for a one-time working relationship.

The first time I went to Greece was in 1997. I had decided to see a bit of Europe after spending some months on the island of Ibiza. As things were, I had picked up a German copy of Henry Miller’s “The Colossus of Maroussi” a book that I still keep albeit in a rather [...]

My name is Nancy Brown and I have a confession to make: I sleep around a lot. Now don’t take that wrong. I’m a lodging editor. I review two properties a week and I’m paid to sleep in other people’s beds. While this may sound like an ideal job, the type of travel writing I [...]

Would you fly from San Francisco to Paris if your airplane was flown by a pilot that didn’t know what he was doing? I think not. Would you take your car to a mechanic who was just practicing in his spare time? I hope not. Well, why would you trust your manuscript to the eyes [...]
