Back on assignment

15522253911_010392399e_oI am working on my new vision board (the last one kicked off 2013* and has been my guiding light for five years now), and am sharing this intention for 2019 with the belief that the world conspires in our favor when we take risks.

Journalism seems to have made a definite comeback (after some very rough years), as there is a stunning array of nonfiction writing being published right now by increasingly diverse voices — and, dare I say, people seem to be reading again. After a few years focusing on my last two books**, I now want to get back on paid assignment in 2019 (in addition to my other bikey stuff).

Farms. Factories. Artists. Inmates. Cities. Even Steve Jobs. You name it; I’ve written about it. I’ve put links to a small selection of my published articles below. I’ll be doing some specific pitches in the coming months, but I just wanted to put this out there in case kismet is connecting you and me right now, dear editor, through the power of social media.
