One of our guest bloggers, Torie Nicholas, a sophomore at the University of Toledo and member of Alphi Chi Omega sorority, recently was offered an opportunity by the editor of her sorority’s publication The Lyre, to publish a food-related article that would reach over 115,000 women internationally. This opportunity came to Torie as a result of the editor becoming aware of her involvement as a guest blogger here at Circle of Food. Torie was kind enough to share her letter below. Congratulations Torie! I can’t wait to see it!
I am writing as the editor of Alpha Chi Omega’s The Lyre. I ran across your blog on circleoffood.com and was wondering if you would be willing to contribute a small column in the spring issue. The spring issue is the first of the newly expanded and redesigned magazine and we are looking for collegiate and alumnae contributors who would be willing to volunteer their time, writing skills, and voice. This would be a great opportunity to be published in a magazine that reaches over 115,000 women internationally. You would receive full editorial credit and a spot on our contributors page (i.e. a brief bio and headshot).
The column I had in mind would be for our new “Collegiate Corner.” This is a 300-500 word column written by a collegian for collegians. After reading your blog, I thought a great take on the spring issue’s column would be comparing food to the transition after graduating. Basically, how food grows with us as we go through college and enter the real world – the evolution of food through a collegian eyes. With your writing skills and interest in food, I think this could be a great kick-off with the new magazine.
