I know there are at least a few of you out there who are writers, and if not writers exactly, you are passionate about getting the message out there about animal welfare, animal rights, the environment, and veganism. You have a story to share, or you'd like to be a regular contributor. I recently received a list of places that are looking for contributions for their periodicals, magazines, websites, etc. I thought I'd share some with you today.
Ecorazzi is looking for daily and weekend writers.
We’re looking for people with a healthy combination of pop culture experience/obsession and passion for topics like humanitarian issues, healthy eating, the environment, charity, science, animal rights, and other pertinent issues. Good grammar, experience with WordPress, editing images (very important), and ninja-like skills in digging up leads are all big pluses.

Articles should be educational or entertaining, relevant to vegetarian/vegans (if including recipes- plant based only), and non-commercial in nature.
