For Editors and Publishers
Our principal writer has been a freelancer, columnist, managing editor, executive editor and magazine publisher during his career, so we get deadlines, story assignments, writing for the audience, AP Style, hi-res photos and word limits. If you have a travel assignment for us in mind, please contact Jeff Orenstein directly at JOrenstein@SimplySmartTravel.com.

For Journalists
We’re working journalists and bloggers ourselves so we have a huge amount of empathy for those who toil in the newsroom, blogosphere or broadcast studio. If you want our help with a story or project you are working on, just ask. If we can help, we will.

If you are a journalist, blogger or broadcaster and are looking for a travel-knowledgeable guest or interview subject, we usually say yes, so don’t hesitate to ask. Email us at JOrenstein@SimplySmartTravel.com .
