I'm wondering if others out there have accepted or pushed for alternative means of compensation? If so, what? Can anyone suggest options/possibilities?
The writing would be done for an independent outlet that produces television shows. They sell their shows to larger media companies in my city that have television and print access. Anything I write for them may be distributed through these media companies, the most likely being one of those daily newspapers most commuters read. While they are well connected... they aren't directly connected.
The form that my writing would take is likely along simple restaurant reviews, recipe recreation reports, or short articles.
My goals include promotion of my blog, getting media attention for a charitable event I run, more writing experience, and simple compensation for any costs I may incur. But maybe there are things I'm not considering here that I can throw into the pot as another option? I'm excited for the oppotunity and am glad for it, but at the same time I don't want to feel as if I've walked away with the short end of the stick (something that often occurs in retrospect).
Thanks for any insight!
