I Don’t Know if This is Much of a Query Letter

But it’s sent so we’ll see what happens next.

Good cold Saturday morning to you.

My name is Terry. I live in Maryland near the Delaware/Maryland state line near the beaches. I happened upon your site yesterday and noticed that you needed travel writers in seventeen states and the District of Columbia. It just so happens that since the DE line is less than 30 minutes away I could easily submit pieces for that state.

As a part of our mutual ongoing luck this time next month I was be traveling full time. I planned out a tentative trip that you can see here.


It would cover WV, OH, KY, TN, SC, NC, VA, and then back up into southern Maryland. The original plan was to cover all of those states in a week, two weeks tops. However, if there are points of interest in each state, I may have to rework the plan so I stay in each state a little longer than originally anticipated. Perhaps leave TN and the Carolinas for another trip.

I’ve been publishing on Medium for nearly two years now. As of this email, I’ve published 913 posts. My platform engagement is at 5420 responses (me responding to other writers and writers responding to my work). I have 1,446 organic followers, No bots purchased. No follow-for-follow. Purely organic followers.

I do all of my own photography for my travels. I also have my own travel pub on Medium.

If there is anything else you’d like to know feel free to drop a line.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
