6 WAYS TO GET YOUR STORY INTO THE LOCAL PAPER

I am in unique position. I am editor of two regional magazines and also a freelance writer regularly pitching story ideas (mainly travel related) to other magazine editors.

TO NANO OR NOT TO NANO: THERE IS NO QUESTION

Man, I love a goal setting exercise. Mix it in with a bit of global writing love with a side order of competition and I am in!
