About 8 months or so ago, give or take, I started co-writing a beer column for Piedmont Local Magazine called, “Tapped into Craft: Libations and Victuals” with Spencer Davis from the Official Beer Sponsor of The Less Desirables, City Beverage. That’s been cool and it’s really just for fun. But, I was offered the chance to do the cover article for the mag and I accepted.
I did this for several reasons:
I love to write, I’ve made no bones about that. I hate reading but I love to write. I know that’s odd. Another thing is that it brings back memories of when I wrote for ESP magazine in the early 2000s. It’s a modestly paying gig and I can certainly use that. And, I was eager to meet the subject of the interview, which you’ll have to wait until the article comes out to find out who that is.
The article, to my knowledge will be out in a few weeks, it goes to the printer tomorrow. It’s the cover, so I am proud of it. I’m still doing the food writing for Camel City Dispatch and I’m still doing the beer thing for the mag. That’s the beauty of freelancing. I’m not tied down to one place. I’m here to share my writing talents (if that’s what it is) with those who need me. So, read the mag, not only for this article but for the fact that it’s chock full of cool things and it’s about your towns (if you live in WSNC, GSO or anywhere in between). You may find something about your favorite establishment or location or even you in there. It’s good reading material, I promise. You can find them in distribution boxes all around the Triad, and it only costs FREE dollars! All that info for free is just good sense, I’d say! Happy Tuesday evening.
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
