This past Wednesday, my colleague Steenie Harvey and I conducted a special bonus session on writing about real estate for the many would-be travel writers in attendance at our Ultimate Travel Writer’s Workshop.
Steenie seconded my contention that you really don’t have to have a background in real estate to write proficiently about it — neither she nor I has any formal real estate training. You do need to keep in mind the guidelines I outlined last week. And, as you’d expect, the more real estate articles you write, the more perspective you gain, and the more credible you become as a “specialist.”
I poked around recently and came up with a few publications you might consider as outlets for your own real estate-related articles —
- International Living — Writer’s Guidelines at http://internationalliving.com/about-il/write-for-il/
- EscapeArtist.com — http://www.escapeartist.com (See today’s featured publication below for advice about writing and submitting articles.)
- Coastal Living — Writer’s Guidelines at http://www.coastalliving.com/about-us/
