Are you a freelance writer in Saskatchewan (or at least knowledgeable about Saskatchewan)? Then it could be I’ve got work for you.
Here’s the release I’ve been sending out today seeking additional writers for the magazines I edit, Fine Lifestyles Regina and the about-to-launch Fine Lifestyles Saskatoon:
Edward Willett, editor of Fine Lifestyles Regina, continues to seek freelance writers to work on the magazine, and is now also seeking writers for Fine Lifestyles Saskatoon, a sister publication launching this spring.
He’s looking for two kinds of writing: features (longer stories not tied to a particular advertiser) and advertorial (typically business profiles; these are part of a an advertising package purchased by a client and subject to the client’s approval).
On the feature side, he’ll be looking for or assigning lead articles for each of these sections:
- Dining, Entertainment and Arts
- Sports, Recreation and Leisure
- Health and Wellness
- House, Home and Property
- Business, Financial and Legal
Feature articles are typically about 1,275 words. Advertorial can vary, but typically runs either 425 words (one page) or 850 (two pages) with only a few going longer.
Rates start at 10 cents a word, but can rise with experience. The magazine also pays $25 per photo used.
For features, the magazines buy one-time print rights and non-exclusive web rights (the magazine appears in facsimile online). Although most stories will be specific to one of the two cities, those with a more general focus may run in both magazines. Advertorial is work-for-hire: the magazine buys all rights.
