We design your newspaper column and query letter to get the attention they deserve.
FROM BOX: Your Display Name with your personal address here at Market2Editors.
TO BOX: "Editor of Features." Your submission will be sent to multiple newspaper editors yet they will see no name except their own.
SUBJECT BOX: We suggest "Syndicated newspaper column Query:" followed by its title and your name.
BODY: We never "overproduce" your piece because doing so creates two problems. #1: It starts to look like spam. #2: Some of the smaller newspapers might not have the equipment necessary to read your message as written.
The email will start with your query letter, dated with the day it is sent. It will be addressed to “Dear Editor” and ends with your own contact information. Your query is followed by one sample newspaper column, embedded with a picture of yourself if you like. At the bottom are “opt-out” instructions for disinterested editors.
YOUR PICTURE: It is not absolutely necessary but we do think your picture dresses up the newspaper column. (Of course, we haven’t seen you yet.)
ATTACHMENTS: We do not send attachments. Not only does it create extra work for the newspaper editor, it takes longer to download. Plus, everyone is afraid of viruses nowadays, many of which are transported in attachments.
If you want to send more than will fit in a one-page e-mail, we suggest pointing a link to your Web site within the body of the e-mail.
