New assignment

So it looks like I'll be covering this Grub Street writing workshop for the Globe. I'm very excited. I've been hoping to break into more feature writing with them, and here's my chance! I also got an email from the Skirt editor acknowledging my submission. Hey, it's something. Best Blogger Tips

Congrats! That's a great assignment. Did you pitch the story, or did the editor contact you with the idea?

Also--what section will it be in?

Awesome, Bug! That's very cool.

I just tagged you for a meme.

Great. Great! I'm also curious how you got the grub street gig.

Thanks! Erin and TI, I pitched the story. The editors had written some of their previous freelancers saying it was a slow new time. I had just read about the Grub thing so I pitched it. The editor gave a tentative yes, and asked me to do a little research. I did, and then reported back and I guess it sounded interesting enough. It will be in CityWeekly on a Sunday in Dec. I'll keep you posted, of course!

Oh, so wonderful. You may have a new career sooner than you thought! Let us know when it comes out!

Cool. I'm curious to know what you think of Grub Street. I've heard a lot about the group but have not taken a poetry workshop with them.
