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.

    1. 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.
