Address: 49 West 22 Street
Huntington Station, NY 11746
Needs: 1. Movie Star Profiles/Bios. Pre-1950 stars only please, though stars that started long before then and continued long after are certainly welcome (ie: Clark Gable, Henry Fonda, Katherine Hepburn). Honestly would prefer work on stars already linked on the Entertainment main page. Be creative, but factual. 500-1,000 words please.
2. Baseball Star Profiles/Bios. Again, Pre-1950 stars if you could. Looking for stuff on Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams, and then Dead Ball Era Players. Honestly would prefer work on stars already linked on the Sports main page. Be creative, but factual. Also, 500-1,000 words preferred.
3. Spotlight on Collectibles. Check out my catalog to see the types of items I am selling. Obviously in this case these would bring precedence. But I'm interested in all types of eclectic collectibles, mostly baseball and movie related and paper items. Educate the subscribers, educate me! Do it in 500-1,500 words.
Length: 500-1,000 words, up to 1,500 words for collectibles articles.
Art/Photo Needs: None at this time.
