Need a writer?


Building off of my New Year's resolutions/predictions, I intend for 2015 to be a year of publication.

As such, I am looking for freelance work with magazines, newspapers, and web sites. Those are just examples. I'm very open to many venues and I enjoy thinking creatively.

What do I write? Well, nose around this blog and you'll get an idea. I admittedly have a penchant for the odd, the weird, and the type of stories that are often marginalized by the mainstream but new media is fortunately beginning to cover them. In terms of the marketplace, I believe these stories stand out and are therefore valuable and marketable. What do I mean? Well, here are a few examples.

I write about discoveries in astronomy and space science. I like to link these findings to our lives "down here" and how this new knowledge helps us to understand humanity's place in the universe.

I write about technology. Not so much about consumer gadgets like you would find on CNET, but more about how technology is changing our society. I am especially interested in future technologies, such as cybernetics and modifying the human body.

I write about the paranormal, the unknown, and unexplained phenomena. Take a spin around the cable channels and look at what History, H2, NatGeo, and even Animal Planet are covering in terms of the bizarre and you'll get an idea of what I'm talking about when I say "the unexplained." While my opinions on these subjects differ greatly from how they are presented on these channels, it will at least give you an idea of what I like to write.

These are just suggestions. My payment rates are also suggestions and negotiable. Please email me at jjn91270@gmail.com if you would like to discuss these rates and my background, credentials, and previous publications. For now, a niveous substance has covered the landscape of greater Chicago.

Perfect day to stay inside and write.
