Still pinching myself! This morning I heard from an editor at Lonely Planet who let me know that an article I had successfully pitched and then submitted to them is now published online.
During my trip to New York this year I visited, researched and wrote about all of the places in Manhattan related to J. D. Salinger (where he lived, where he hung out, and where he wrote about).
My article published by Lonely Planet collects all of the key locations around Manhattan that feature in Salinger’s novel The Catcher in the Rye; many have not changed so it is still possible to retrace the path that Holden Caulfield carved out in December 1949.
Click here to read the article, where I am credited as a “Lonely Planet Writer.” So exciting!
If you are reading this as a freelance writer, I would definitely recommend pitching to Lonely Planet. They have a clearly defined response timeframe, their editors are fantastic to work with, and they pay their freelancers generously.
