Who are the writers / editors?

Do we have any writer / editor types in our ranks? Actually, I know we do but would any like to take a more active role in over-seeing a monthly article being published by a member story, or publishing their own content in a column, etc?

Half of my job is writing ads, as well as technical bulletins in layman's terms for our products and related topics. I've written a book (soon to be published) and had several articles published, though the subject matter in all of these literary works is aquarium care and chemistry. I've actually been toying with the idea of submitting some work to the SWFF mags, just to see if I can "get a word in edge-wise". Does that count?

Hey, Juro--

I'd be glad to help, but I'd have to keep it somewhat limited. One of the problems with being a freelance writer/staff writer is that I work for myself, and if I don't write, I don't eat.

While I could probably go a couple of weeks, maybe even more, without eating, the long-term effects on my fishing could be unsatisfactory. Besides, too much editing cuts into fishing time-- something that's already too limited.

Without going into my qualifications in boring detail, I'll say that I'm on staff at two magazines and taught composition at university and community college level for nine years.

I've written manuals, operational guidelines, guidebooks and such for groups such as the BSA and military; not all droll, mundane, drudgery kinds of stuff, either. Used to pen a newsletter for an area Scout council. I write, proofread and edit in my job. I've had very limited time to fish these past couple years, so I don't have much to add to that discussion at present.

However, I'd be willing to lend a hand to a journal or magazine style layout - might even force me to try to do more fishing (and maybe have some personal input.)

Your choice; happy to participate.

I can do the Flesch Reading Level scores, I have had to become an expert in the last week, due to some new laws.

Some things need no dialog my friend. One picture is worth a million words.

We could get the guys who write for the WWF - lots of dialog with little action

My undergrad degree was English with a Creative Writing "focus" (the school didn't do minors). I also did an amount of gradual work in writing and teaching writing; currently work in a position involving a substantial amount of editing other people's work. I'd be happy to assist/contribute.

Juro -

It looks like you've already got a solid list, but if you need someone else to extinguish passive verbs, croak dangling participles, and stuff back the serial commas, I'll play.

Hey, Juro ....

Right at the moment, I am listed as a "contributing editor" for Shotgun Sports Magazine. I write (and they publish) somewhere between six and ten monthly articles per year for them. (This winter played hell with me, as it curtailed my "field testing", and I am a little backlogged on evaluations.) I just started writing after my retirement from a major corporation, then some technical consulting.

Anyway, what do you require, and how much time would it take me (as I never let "work" interfere with "fun")?

Send me an e-mail if you can roughly outline what you need.

BobK
