best pathetic attempts to break in to 'the writing biz' New York 2003 - MEDIABISTRO
In ninth grade you got misty-eyed about the guy with the press tag in his film noir hat, and now here you are, feeling filthy at a MEDIABISTRO networking session. Trying to break in to travel writing? Want a job as a yes-man at a vertically integrated media conglomerate? Well, for only $49 you can be a member and learn all about it. But hey, no guarantees. The only racket more profitable might be the J-schools that pump 'em out.
