Fodor's Travel is looking for writers for the Germany guidebook, specifically those based in Frankfurt and Heidelberg.
Fodor's is a leading guidebook brand for American travelers with more than 300 titles covering most corners of the globe (www.fodors.com).
If you are working in Germany, or know any reporters/factcheckers who are currently stationed there, please be in touch. Feel free to pass this request on to friends, colleagues, and journalism listservs. Please note that we hire journalists who have local expertise, i.e. most writers work in the specific country/region or live there at least part of the year. We're looking to make assignments now and assignments are due back by the end of September. Topics include sights, restaurants, hotels, nightlife, the arts, sports and shopping. Pay ranges from around $1,000, depending on assignment scope.
If interested, please forward your resume and clips to Salwa Jabado at email@example.com. Clips demonstrating experience writing restaurant, hotel, or site reviews are especially valuable. Please include a few lines about your topical expertise. Also note how long you have been in the country, and your comfort level with German. Fluent English speakers and strong writers preferred.
