Description

We are a regional lifestyle magazine based in the East Midlands, targeting a 25+ wealthy audience. We are looking for a 1500-2000 word celebrity interview for the magazine. Deadline is tight, we need delivery by Friday November 5th. Would suit someone who already has interviewed a personality but could change and adapt for our audience. Excellent grammar and spelling is of course required. No preference as to personality or celebrity, although they must be fit for the front cover!

We look forward to hearing from you.

    Let me get this right. You want a 1500-2000 word celebrity interview for about £100. You want to use my contacts and my writing skills and you want to pay a word rate from 1970. And you want good grammar...

    Hi there

    What date would the magazine be on the stands? I would have a shot at getting you a pretty good name but it very much depends on the on-stand date.

    Hi Morag,

    Thanks for your question. The magazine would be on the stands from the 16th November. Hope this helps.

    Hey Pip
    on the money
    My little sis works for one of the biggest celeb mags in the pop world and i knwo they would fry her alive if she ever thought of selling on her stuff - the best mags have their writers so contracted up to the arm pits that they would kiss good bye to their careers if they ever considered this

    Hi

    Can I just reply to both previous comments regarding the re-sale of editorial. I entirely agree with you, however in this case it would be more beneficial for a PR representative who is entirely free to use an editorial or interview they have already created. The aim isn't to get a freelancer who has already written for another publication but one who perhaps has completed an interview as part of a tour promotion etc. who is free to re-write an re-sell the interview.

    Just wanted to clarify before we had any more messages to the same effect.

    Hi there,

    Just a note about your suggestion regarding re-nosing a previous interview - most celebs I have ever interviewed would be furious if I then re-wrote it for a different publication without them agreeing to appearing in it! I don't wish to tell you how to run your magazine, but it would be worth being wary of this and ensuring that what ever celebrity you do use has agreed to it. I would love to bid for an original piece if the budget was higher!
