Texas Writers Wanted

Calling Texas writers!

I need Texas writers, preferably those who have experience with travel writing, for destination reviews: restaurants, hotels, events, music, bars, etc. All the things that make Texas the great state that it is. You can also write about unique people, cities, out of the way places, etc.

I prefer pitches as opposed to assignments. If you’re scrambling for ideas, however, I can assign a topic.

Big Grey Horse blog posts require that you visit the location. Sources are required for each piece. All blog posts are written in first person POV and range from 600 to 1,000 words.

Your writing style must be clear and engaging. I love unique voices and humor is welcome.

Pieces pay $125-200. Photos are required and included in the payment. Payment is made upon acceptance. Your byline is given and includes a short bio and link to your website. Big Grey Horse Media buys First Worldwide Electronic Rights.

You will accept and work under a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) and contract.

You must be a Texas resident and familiar with the state.

Please send your pitch and two published clips (preferably travel pieces about Texas) to laura@biggreyhorse.com. If you are a stellar writer but have no travel clips, submit a published piece that shows your style. Content mill work doesn’t count.

    • Hi Mary! Thanks for writing. We’ll be contracting with new writers Q1 2017. Please follow the instructions on this page to be eligible for consideration. Good luck and we look forward to receiving your samples and pitches!

  1. I’d love to write for you guys. I’ve operated a blog for over 7 years and have recently rebranded under a new blog. I love to write about my travels in Texas. Topics include…all things Waco (my hometown), funky places in DFW and Austin and various other roadtrips. I noticed that some of your Waco posts on your blog are lacking in showing the true Waco spirit and uniqueness. I’d be happy to focus on that area of Texas for you. I’ll be sending you some writing samples later in the month.

  2. Hi Laura,
    I’m enjoying your website and would love to be considered as a future writer here. I’ve been writing about Texas (and other places I’ve traveled) on my blog for a couple of years now. I enjoy writing and taking pictures and sharing on my blog. I focus a lot on the water, since that’s where I spend most of my life. Working, sailing, SCUBA diving, fishing, snorkeling, beach combing, etc.
    I’ve just sent you an email.

    • Hi Jill!

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I also appreciate your interest in writing for BGH. We are looking at writer pitches/samples/LOIs this quarter and choosing who we will work with in 2017. πŸ™‚

  3. Have traveled quite a bit in Texas and love the state. I am a native, born in Wichita Falls, TX, and lived in Texas for a good portion of my life. I would love an opportunity to write about Texas.

      • Hi Laura,
        Are you still accepting applications from Texas writers? I’ve lived in Texas for over 30 years, but have also been living part-time in Belize over the past year and writing for a Central America site. Can send samples.

        • Hi Cathi! Thanks for posting and I apologize for the late reply. Yes, we are taking writer applications. The process of going through the pitches/resumes/apps has taken far longer than we predicted, but if you’re a Texas resident and have travel writing experience, you’re more than welcome to throw your hat into the ring. πŸ™‚ This page details how to submit your application, so read it over and you’ll get the full scoop.

          Thanks so much!
