As a freelance type of guy most of the stories I write for publication have to be found – by me. Oh yah, sometimes newspapers and magazines will give me assignments, but usually I have to find my own stories.
I’m looking for story ideas about people, places and things around Asheville. It has to be interesting – something everyone would want to read about. It has to be local – I doubt if the Washington Post will be interested in a local story that flies even under OUR radar. And that’s the third criteria. It has to be something that the “mainstream” news outlets don’t – or won’t – write about.
So that’s about it. Post your suggestions on my Facebook page and I’ll let you know who the winner is. Once the story is published in MountainExpress, we’ll schedule an evening for dinner.
