GOAL: Get my writing in front of Pauline Frommer to read (and hopefully love). Win a trip around the world, too.
STRATEGY: Enter “I am Intrepid” Contest (done). Be voted into the top 10 by the public and my family and friends before June 5.
As you know, I am a new travel writer following my dream while trying to figure out how make a living. I need to meet folks in the industry, get them interested in me and have them read and recommend my work… And hopefully hire me for a few assignments, too!
This is Pauline Frommer, established and esteemed travel writer and expert. Her book series, subtitled “spend less do more,” is exactly what every frugalista who has a thirst for travel needs: practical, off-the-beaten track, budget-friendly travel ideas for cities and countries around the world. I have two of her books (Paris and San Francisco) and have consulted her many others for helpful and practical ideas. I love, love, love ALL of Pauline’s books! And, incidentally yes, she is from the same Frommer family that brings the world the Frommer travel guide series.
I respect her work so much and just the thought of Pauline reading my name and reading my work makes me ecstatic!
The only way I can get my writing in front of Pauline and the three other awesome judges is with your votes and love. Only the top 10 vote-getting entries are reviewed by the judges. Here’s how you can help me out:
- Please vote for my entry to get my writing in front of Pauline Frommer and the other amazing judges.
- Share the link to my entry with your family and friends! You can only vote for an entry ONCE. This is not American Idol. I can’t even vote for myself! So please spread the love around! We only have until June 5!
The current top vote-getter has 763 votes! We have until June 5! I know we can do this! Thanks in advance for your help!
… And you might have noticed there is a trip for four anywhere that Intrepid hosts tours. That’s some nice incentive, too 🙂
