Hey everyone, I just had my first piece accepted to techcrunch and wanted to share my process. https://techcrunch.com/2019/04/24/how-to-source-hard-to-fill-programming-positions/
It’s for their new extracrunch section. Paywall, subscription content… But right now they are eagerly bringing on new contributors and the barrier to getting published is lower! So, highly recommended!
Started by drafting a linkedin piece and then sent a letter to the editor offering to give it to TC instead. The team there was super professional and really helped me improve the article, both through editing and suggesting areas for expansion
Also if anyone happens to be interested in the content itself I have their blessing to just dm a pdf that doesn’t require paywall. Their term is that I’m allowed to republish anywhere else in 7 days as long as I link back to the original post (presumably for SEO reasons).
For the cartoon image, I hired loraine yow whom i was referred to thru IH's very own @mtlynch!
