Queries 23-25: Hangovers, Leads and Small Presses
While shopping today for cold medication, I came across a hangover patch which you'd wear while you drink. When you wake up the next day, you will not have a hangover. Thought this would make for a cool try-to-buy story, which I am pitching to a woman's magazine, as well as a local publication.
A few weeks ago, I wrote a letter of interest to the Career College Association's magazine to gain future assignments. I thought of an idea for a feature story in some unique ways to develop leads for prospective students. The goal is to have the lowest-cost-per-lead-- so many schools try to gain what they call personally developed leads. I have some ideas for that and can present an article for their admissions section of the magazine.
A small publishing press is soon relocating its offices to be housed in a local university, as part of their MA in creative program. This is exciting news, as now the program will have a resident imprint. I am pitching this idea to a writing magazine.
