Have you ever thought about becoming an outdoor writer, author, blogger, podcaster, or other type of bowhunting or outdoor communicator? Listen as Lindsay Thomas Jr. shares his career experiences, advice, and encouragement as a journalist, an author, an outdoor writer, and as a magazine and website editor.
Guest’s Opening Quote:
“If you had told me to pick up the phone and call the editor of **Outdoor Life** I’d have thought, are you crazy, you can’t just do that. Well of course you can, you can pick up the phone, you can write an email and reach out to folks. They are, in my experience as a magazine editor and now the editor of a website, they’re looking for content.”
