FreelanceArticleSnapI’m often asked if we accept unsolicited queries. We do. We just haven’t had the submission guidelines posted on the web site for the last couple of years – and now we do.

Every issue includes at least a couple of articles from freelance writers, many of which started out as unsolicited queries. In fact, we rarely assign projects or techniques to freelancers;  we’d much rather have folks tell us about what they’re interested in writing, rather than trying to tell them in what they ought to be interested. A personal connection to the subject comes through on the page – and that usually makes for a better read.

And we’d love to get some new “voices” into our pages. And a contemporary project or three.

So if you have an query you’ve been eager to submit, take a look at the submission guidelines (where you’ll also find a sample query).

But first, a few hints (also known as a look at my pet peeves as an editor):

• I beg you – before submitting your work to us for consideration – read the last couple of issues (at least) of PWM.
