short note by the editor of GetCalhoun.com:
Noted writer and historical figure, "There are those who write
and then there are those who like to read about writing but somehow
never get around to it."

filter filters Calhoun County (and surrounding counties) for the rare people of innate genius
who are qualified to write news and feature articles about Calhoun
have often said, (mostly to myself) that the only true
mark of writing success is to be paid.
Thus...well written, semi-timeless features, and news
articles of interest will be paid at a rate of $5. Photos will
enhance the likelihood of seeing your work in GetCalhoun.com
If the pittance we offer is not sufficient, we can't
afford you anyway and you should seek your worth elsewhere. Man
and boy I got paid $5 for my newspaper articles. It wasn't the
amount...it was getting paid in cash for my work that was
important. And, of course, there are other rewards that come
with being a recognized local writer. If you can relate to the concept, we want to see your
words in print here on GC. Get printed and get paid.
Only The Facts of Getting
Published on GC...
- Submit your idea first. You
mustn't assume you will be published.
- No ideas? Contact me and
I'll assign a story for you.
- I prefer features as opposed
to perishable news. If you don't know the difference you may
ask. I like to work with sincere writers who are capable of
producing literate fare who understand how to craft a good
article using the elements of good composition.
- However...Can you produce a weekly
(or more often)
local/regional sports news article? Contact GC. If you want to
catch a break and build a raft of work for your resume...this
is your chance.
- The pay is low, but only top
notch material will be accepted. Writers of any age group are
accepted as long as your material reflects your best effort.
The material doesn't have to be serious, but the writer
- Your work should run from
500-1000 words. Longer work may be accepted.
- Your work must pertain to
things Calhoun County*, whether past, present, or future.
Convince me that moon rocks have been located in Calhoun
County and you may write about the moon.
For 2006 GetCalhoun.com has expanded opportunities for area
writers! Beginning Jan 2006 GetCalhoun.com invites writers in
surrounding counties to submit feature articles for
publication. The counties include Talladega County,
Randolph County, St. Clair County, and Cleburne County. If
you have the goods, we want to see it. The same rules apply
here as features set in Calhoun County, AL.
- Your final product should be
submitted via email. Single spaced Word files preferred. Will
accept other text media.
- Attach your photos to an
email. Where possible, send the full size medium resolution
pictures. I'll cut them down to size.
Contact me and tell me about your interesting idea. In
compensation for the abominable pay, consider that GC gets a LOT
of page views. Your heart and our hits makes for a happy
