We are looking for a writer with considerable knowledge and experience in luxury travel throughout the Middle East, particularly Turkey: Cappadocia, Istanbul, Ephesus, the Lycian Coast. This will be an editorial about a luxury vacation taken by a family/couple to Turkey (and possibly other areas in the Middle East).
We also need a writer (who knows Turkey well) for a piece on high fashion or high-end jewelry.
Would you be interested in taking this assignment? We would be interested in hearing from you (resume, rate/word, and writing samples helpful!).
Good afternoon, Jeanine, and welcome to Tripatini! It's great to have you with us -- and we think you'll find our site productive as well as interesting and enjoyable.
To get the most out of Tripatini, you may want to take a moment to join several of our many groups which you may find of particular interest, such as Media Only, New York State, Israel, Iceland, Spain, Portugal, Turkey, Biking/Mountain Biking, Skiing/Boardding Vacations, Eating/Drinking the World, our Spanish and Italian language/culture clubs, and plenty of others covering many other topics and most destinations across the globe.
FYI, on your profile you'll see a green bar marked "Text Box," which you can turn into a box containing not just text but also photos and even videos about yourself, your interests, your travels, and your writing/outlets.
Finally, if you would, please be so kind as to spread the word among your travel-interested friends, family, colleagues, associates, and readers. It's fast and easy to use our "INVITE" function above left on the navigation bar to enter e-mails (even your whole list at once!). If you have the chance to cover us in any of your outlets, that would be great, and if you might be interested in blogging for us on occasion rates/guidelines are available upon request.
Thanks much for joining us, Jeanine; we wish you an outstanding rest of 2009 and look forward to seeing you online.
