Hello Sarah and Staff,

I am a local (Atlanta, GA) food and travel writer, however I am branching out to National and International locations. I sent my Cover Letter, Resume and samples last month in June. I am still interested in becoming a freelance writer for Big 7 Travel, if the positions are still available. Thank you.
