…a conversation with Travel Dreams Contributing Editor, Tim Cotroneo
TPM ~ What grabs your attention in a query?
TC ~ I appreciate it when a travel writer has a good grasp of Travel Dreams content. I want to see the writer has reviewed our website, and then pitched an article that falls under our categories of luxury travel, high-end golf courses, or entrepreneurial success stories.
TPM ~ Name something that will send a query to the delete pile.
I’m open-minded and empathetic about helping a new writer get started. What is frustrating is when a writer doesn’t state what they are pitching. I receive a fair amount of pitches that are commercial, and hazy regarding a product the writer is hoping to promote. Please state your idea or the destination you’d like to write about. Be sure your article matches the theme or flavor of Travel Dreams and follows our guides.
