Pay Me?

Friday, January 15, 2010


Journalist Paige Williams wrote a profile of Dolly Freed, a reclusive author who'd been briefly famous in the 1970s after writing a book about her years spent living off the grid. When Williams couldn't find anyone willing to publish Freed's story, she decided to publish it herself and ask readers for donations.

I heard of your reporting story on NPR and how you had to pay for the writing the story as a reporter.

Your story on Dolly Freed sounds as though it would be a good story for the Mother Earth News Magazine. Oh and they have a web site as well so you could possibly use that venue.

I hope someone with some cash will pay you what the story is worth.
