Thank you for your interest in writing for The Chesapeake Liaison. The Chesapeake Liaison, formerly known as NOVA Common Sense, is one of Virginia’s top 10 citizen journalist-managed media outlets focusing on local politics (Source: http://bluevirginia.us/diary/5450/virginia-news-headlines-thursday-morning). We receive about 10,000 hits per month and quality articles can get up to 1,000 hits within two days. Most importantly, the audience here is a well-educated, civic-minded, and highly-engaged crowd. Writing for this outlet will give your work invaluable exposure to many of the top elected officials and community leaders in the region.
The Chesapeake Liaison is searching for people who are established or aspiring writers with a deep interest in local issues in the DC/Maryland/Virginia region. We seek writers from diverse backgrounds to enhance the discussion of ideas on this outlet. The goal is to make this outlet every bit as educational as it is informative. We do not ask writers to conceal their beliefs and the personal experiences that influence those beliefs, but we do ask for fairness in reporting, respect for differing viewpoints, proper decorum, and professional presentation.
If this opportunity intrigues you, please e-mail our Chief Editor Phil Tran at firstname.lastname@example.org. Enclose your resume in PDF format, attach two writing samples, and provide two professional references.
