A new adventure came to fruition this week. The February issue of MVP Magazine includes articles written by.... drumroll.... me!
It's the result of a conversation I had with publisher Tara Dimick at the Big Dream Gathering last September. I told her I was interested in writing and we got to talking about how she recruits writers for the magazine. By December, we were having lunch and talking specifics about how I could get involved. Tara (and her husband) are behind both MVP, which focuses on Shawnee County high school athletics and TK, which looks at Topeka's business community.
I like to write and I like to write stories about interesting things people are doing, so one (or two) deadlines a month seemed right up my alley! My first assignment is about high school bowling, so I hope you'll check it out. I have a link on my Facebook page or search "MVP Sports Magazine" on Facebook for its page.
I'm having a great time with it so far. But more than that, I think it's great that the Topeka area has these publications giving us a look at our community in ways TV and the newspaper cannot. Our community is fortunate to have MVP, TK, XYZ, 785 and Topeka - and perhaps others with which I'm unfamiliar. Check them all out and get to know your city!
