Looking for a Few Good Writers
By the Editors
Is writing a creative outlet? Ever dreamt of a being a restaurant critic? Recently become a mom that’s now struggling with work-life balance? Sit on the board of a nonprofit that doesn’t get enough love from local media? Would you love to start a blog – but don’t have time?
If you answered yes to any of the above, you’re in luck – we’re looking for a few new ladies to join our family!
I know, I know – what would I write about? Who cares what I have to say? Isn’t it scary putting yourself out there?
We hear that a lot – but we promise that once you start, it quickly becomes addicting and a lot of fun. We had to “force” a few creative/hilarious friends to take the leap, and they’re now our most frequent contributors. Only a few guidelines/rules to become a “Girl on the Grid”…
- You must write at least one article a month. We also offer plenty of collaboration articles for months when you’re busy.
- There are no length requirements but remember to keep your content concise and to the point.
- You can write on any topic, and the majority of our content falls into two buckets: cheerleading Sacramento and sharing advice/experiences. We also stay away from politics because there’s plenty of other outlets for folks interested in that topic!
- Original content is key. Your content must be written exclusively for GOTG.
- If you sit on the board or have any professional/personal connection to your topic, you must disclose it.
- You must be based in the Sacramento region.
Shoot us an email (girlsonthegrid AT gmail DOT com) and tell us who you are and what you’re interested in writing about. From there, we’ll help you get started and provide any resources to make your life easier! PLUS – we have a managing editor who adds the pictures, hyperlinks and edits each piece…so all you have to focus on is the content.
The reason one writes isn’t the fact he wants to say something. He writes because he has something to say. ~F. Scott Fitzgerald
Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing. ~Benjamin Franklin
