My first assignment for the special publications of the (Eugene) Register-Guard was in the winter of 2011. Since then, I have published articles about granite countertops, local artists, licensed falconers, and entrepreneurs, among many others. I am always looking for interesting story ideas and value being able to contribute to my local daily newspaper.
So far, I’ve regularly contributed to the monthly Home and Garden section, the twice-yearly business special sections, the quarterly Tastings publication, the annual Discovery publication about outdoor activities and recreation, the annual Retirement guide, and Dash, a monthly publication that was geared toward women. Dash was folded into the regular paper and some similar content now appears in the weekly Saturday section called Weekend, which I contribute to on a regular basis. More food coverage also appears now in the weekly paper, which I also regularly contribute to.
