Interested in writing for My Table magazine, in print or online? We want to hear from you! We love fresh voices and points of view. If you have an idea for a story, email us a thoughtful query that outlines your article and how you intend to research it. Tell us a little about yourself and, if you have them, provide links to three samples of your past work. Previously published work is not a requirement to write for My Table, but superior language skills and a curious mind are. Queries should be sent to email@example.com. Tip: Study the magazine to get a feel for our editorial style, recent coverage and intended audience.
Painting, drawing, collage, photography … My Table prides itself on outstanding original art on the cover of every edition, and we welcome the work of new artists as well as those with many years of experience. In addition, many of our features and columns inside the magazine are illustrated with original work. We want to see your work. We typically buy one-time rights to an illustration, and all other rights remain with the artist. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Selling advertising for My Table magazine, The Ultimate Food Lover’s Guide to Houston and my-table.com is a great way to jump into the Houston restaurant world. Pay is commissioned-based, so you can work as much or as little as you wish. We’re looking for friendly salespeople who want to help Houston restaurants and businesses reach My Table readers. Advertising experience is a plus, but not required. Email email@example.com.
We love our interns, and we want to make sure that you have a valuable learning experience working with My Table magazine. We look for interns who are ready and willing to do the grunt work (e.g. fact-checking, proof-reading), in addition to writing articles for publication and becoming immersed in the Houston food scene.
The ideal intern has excellent writing skills, enjoys plunging into a topic and doesn’t mind digging hard for answers. He or she should have good people skills, be a self-starter who doesn’t need babysitting and be unafraid of asking questions of real people. (We aren’t interested in you if your idea of “reporting” is to cut and paste together articles from the internet.) Reasonable skill with a camera is a bonus. You’ll need a car.
We engage two or three editorial interns every year, both paid and unpaid (depending on level of experience). For all internship queries, email two samples of food-related writing and your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that applicants should already have completed at least one journalism course before applying for an internship. Being able to follow these directions is the first step towards being considered for an internship.
