What We Are Looking For From Potential Writers:
Someone Who Knows The Industry And The Sport: If you simply rely on past hunting experiences then you will probably run out of ideas fairly quickly. It is important to not only be able to recap hunting adventures you should also have a diverse understanding of bowhunting tactics and equipment.
Someone Who Can Really Write: You don’t need to be a great writer but you should be a good one. We routinely look for individuals who know what they want to say and how to communicate it to our readers. In addition, if the vast majority of time is spent editing your submission there is a good chance it will not be used. At the very least a minimum amount of grammatical, spelling and punctuation errors should be present. Do your best to submit your best.
Entertain As Well As Educate: It’s one thing to get your point across. But can you do it in a manner that engages our readers and doesn’t bore them? Do your best to connect with and entertain our readers as much as possible; as opposed to simply throwing out information. Good writers can do both.
Say What Hasn’t Been Said: While a lot of bowhunting literature tends to repeat itself, there is always room for new and exciting topics. Do you have any? If so, our readers would love to get your take on a familiar topic. Maybe you have an idea that’s never been used before; perhaps a different way of doing things. In short, tell us something we don’t already know.
