Pitch to SizingUpTheSouth.com

SizingUpTheSouth.com does accept pitches for the publication. The articles should cover journalists and journalism in our four state coverage area. Although many articles pertain to SPJ programs and issues in our region, we also cover breaking news and information, as well as feature individual journalists and newsrooms who are in our region, including student journalism. While SPJ Region 3 cannot pay our freelance writers at this time, we are building a sponsorship campaign to be able to do so soon! It is a great way to get published in a regional journalism news publication whether you are just starting out at a freelancer or as a collegiate journalists. Also, if you are interested in developing a column on a particular issue or topic, SizingUpTheSouth.com would like to hear from you too.
