The 1st GGT Planning Meeting, August 2010
Green Global Travel is Hiring Staff Writers!
As you may have read, Mary and I are getting extremely swamped with Green Travel Media, the “Just One Rhino” charity project we’ll be announcing soon, and other commitments. And it has always been our goal to make GGT a true multi-author site.
To that end, we’re hiring four Green Global Travel staff writers,” paying them $25 per story and requiring them to turn in one story per month. These stories will go through a thorough pitching and editing process and will have hard deadlines (just like the other publications I edit), so there will be an educational component involved in these positions as well.
There’s no specific word count on our stories: I run GGT just like a magazine, with different story “departments.” Sections such as Go Green Tips, Global Culture and Endangered Species Spotlight tend towards the 600-800 word range, while our Destinations and Eco News pieces tend to be 1200-1500 and up. And of course we also do Photo Essays as well. Basically, the word count is whatever the given story requires.
We realize that $25 isn’t much, but we’re only just starting to make any sort of real profit on the work that we do on GGT. As we grow, so will our staff and our editorial budget. And of course our people will get dibs on many of the paying projects that come in through Green Travel Media.
The $25 is basically just a token: The real opportunity is for long-term career development, working with me as your professional editor. We’re looking for folks who REALLY believe in what we’re doing and want to be a part of it, not people just looking for any paying gig.
If you’re interested, please send us an email including a brief summary of your blog and your professional writing experience (if any), and a link to ONE story that you feel best represents the type of work you’d like to do for GGT to info[at]GreenGlobalTravel.com. People who have been writing about ecotourism and conservation issues, and who have supported GGT’s work in the past, will be moved to the front of the line. Thanks in advance for your time and consideration! –Bret Love
