Editor’s Choice – March 2020
By Stephen Kirchner
TPM – What grabs your attention in a query?
Kirchner – The effort to do a little research about our publication, especially our editorial calendar.
The writer who says, “I see your editorial calendar will feature a destination I have recently visited” will gain interest on our end.
TPM – Name something that will send a query to the delete pile?
Kirchner – Any event happening prior to our next publication date. We get a lot of those.
Also, any destination that we have featured in the publication in the last two years.
