Greetings fellow journalists. This is a pre-trip announcement for a fabulous trip to Copper Canyon in Mexico! Qualified IFWTWA journalists AND ONE GUEST will experience Topolobampo bay on the Gulf of Mexico, El Fuerte river rafting, train ride through the Sierra Madre Mountains, Tarahumara church in Urique, and a canyon said to be four times larger than the Grand Canyon.
I returned from my trip to the coast of Washington with some story ideas.
I looked at a recent copy of the Travel Section of the Oregonian newspaper and sent a query to the editor. He was interested and wanted to see the article. I followed the style of a writer in the paper; similar sentence length, the format for including addresses and contact info etc.
