In late 2015, PR News was seeking abstracts for articles to include in their 2016 Media Training Guidebook. My abstract (1,000 word count minimum) was selected and my article was subsequently published in their Guidebook; copies of which currently sell for $399 in digital and $449 in print.
“Mayra, your topic sounds interesting, and we’d love to have it provided it meets our editorial standards and is consultative with tactical information, strategies and lessons learned.”

I pitched the initial vision for the “Pet Tech” column (1,000 word count per column) to the The Virginia-Maryland Dog Magazine back in 2013 and the magazine agreed. View the sample shared.
I not only authored the Pet Tech column but also branded it as “Pet Tech” and designed the column’s logo artwork (see left).
I’ve wrote various executive, business, and people profiles for Posh Seven Magazine. Their editor would usually reach out and assign the interview, define the word count, and provided me with important interviewee details as well as deadline information.
During the same period I was authoring digital marketing columns (as shared earlier on this list; scroll up to see) for this newspaper’s business journal, I was additionally writing 1,000 word count executive profiles for them as well.
