Local Writing Opportunity

Dear Christians Who Wirte:

I recently received the following writing op. Karen will be speaking to our group in January, but you might want to keep this in mind. She is interested in hearing your article ideas and will consider suggestions for periodic columns. Although these are non-paying opportunities, you can get your name before thousands of local readers. Your profit is building name recognition.




I'm the owner/developer of a new faith-based website in Richmond - SpotlightRichmond.com. We have a Faith & Values section on the site. We currently have an article on there by Stacy Hawkins Adams. Other Christian writers have submitted stories. We would welcome stories, poems, etc. from your members.

We officially launched at the end of September - had 92,000 hits in October. In early January, we are going to announce a Random Acts of Kindness Contest. National RAK week is Feb. 12-18. The idea is to localize that event - encouraging people to commit 3 RAK that week - pay it forward - we'll list everyone involved, share stories, give away lots of prizes - and compile a book of stories - which will be sold with 100% of proceeds going back into the community through charitable projects. Would welcome help with the book portion of this project especially.

Karen Hannon
