So I have introduced myself, or been introduced to, people from these outlets.
And have had zero response, save for the South Philly Review where I got a response about a 10 – 15 hour a week non-paid internship where I could possibly be rewarded with, “The ultimate goal is a bylined story for the intern…” Awesome.
- Philadelphia Daily News
- City Paper (this one I might of botched)
- Philadelphia Weekly
- Star weekly papers
- South Philly Review (see above)
George tried to give me a little boost, saying something about it being the end of summer.
Back in April when I was looking to freelance, I reached out to a bunch of magazines.
Everyone thinks because of my experience and how I write, getting work would be easy.
I can’t even get in the door to be rejected.
