Writers Wanted! Two Little Cavaliers is looking for you to join our team! Talented writers photographers or just animals lovers looking to share their love.
A Book Reviewer – Someone who has the time to read at least a book a week and write up a review. You can choose if you will read e-books or only hard copies (paperback generally) of the book. The books you review would be yours to keep. Whoa nelly! We have already had 5 people jump on this one. Glad to see so many people still love to read! We will let you know if we need any more but for now I think we are good.
2. A Travel Writer – Someone who travels with their dog(s) often. What you need to make a great great travel writer pictures, lots of travel, tips, places to visit, etc. If you don’t have a dog but are willing to figure out dog friendly things to do in the places you visit that works for us too! Will sometimes be offered travel accessories to review. Review item would be yours to keep. All review items would be yours to keep.
3. A Fashion Writer for Dogs – Someone who has a dog that already regularly dress up. As long as the articles are about fashion and pets we don’t care what you write about. Will sometimes be given the option to review clothing for their dog. All review items are yours to keep.
4. A Dog Show Writer / Breed Enthusiast – We don’t care what breed. You must regularly attend dog shows as a breeder, owner, or handler (junior handler would be awesome) or be willing to attend shows in your area. It doesn’t matter what country you are located in. You must receive permission from owners to photograph their dogs so they can be posted.You can write about topics that affect purebred dogs or dogs in general. You can do interviews (we can help set them up if you have someone specific in mind), follow a dog on their dog show journey, whatever you would like.
5. A Crafts Writer – We here at Two Little Cavaliers are desperate for a crafts writer! There are so many cool things crafty people can make for their dogs or as gifts for dog lovers but I can’t sew so we are looking for someone who loves to do projects and is willing to take pictures of them. You don’t need to be able to write you can send us the directions and pictures and we can add more text. We may be able to get you access to crafting supplies.
5. A Rescue Writer – Someone to write about all things rescue! Cool events, a specific dog, highlight a rescue, the sky is the limit.
6. A Photographer – I know this isn’t a writing one but I would love to get to use high quality pictures of dogs in exchange for helping to promote the artists work. We can do themed posts ie only white dogs one week, only Labradors another, dogs with wagging tails, dogs with a happy smile, dogs playing in fall leaves. You get the idea. Lots of great quality pictures. And possibly some tips posts for how to best photograph your pet.

We Wanted to be Writers is a rollicking and insightful blend of original interviews, commentary, advice, gossip, anecdotes, analyses, history, and asides with nearly thirty graduates and teachers at the now legendary Iowa Writers' Workshop between 1974 and 1978. Among the talents that emerged in those years-writing, criticizing, drinking, and debating in the classrooms and barrooms of Iowa City-were the younger versions of writers who became John Irving, Jane Smiley, T.C. Boyle, Michelle Huneven, Allan Gurganus, Sandra Cisneros, Jayne Anne Phillips, Jennie Fields, Joy Harjo, Joe Haldeman, and many others. It is chock full of insights and a treasure trove of inspiration for all writers, readers, history lovers, and anyone who ever "wanted to be a writer." Jane Smiley on the Iowa writers' workshop: "In that period, the teachers tended to be men of a certain age, with the idea that competition was somehow the key-the Norman Mailer period. The story was that if you disagreed with Norman, or gave him a bad review, he'd punch you in the nose. You were supposed to get in fights in restaurants." T.C. Boyle on his short story "Drowning": "I got $25 for it, which was wonderful. You know, getting $25 for the product of your own brain? You could buy a lot of beer in Iowa City back then for that.$12.16
