Roy Stevenson, Freelance Writer,
Freelance Writing Articles

Roy Stevenson has had over 800 articles published in 180 magazines, after taking a travel writer’s workshop through Great Escape Publishing (formerly AWAI) in 2007.

During this time he has developed a system that almost guarantees his articles will be published. This system has meshed all of the important links in the freelance writing chain, including dreaming up viable topics, researching the subject, writing enticing query letters, finding suitable magazines to pitch, writing a flowing piece, submitting it in a timely manner, and taking and captioning photographs to accompany the article.

Most of Roy’s articles get published as a result of his system. While most freelance writers are happy with an acceptance rate of 25% for their article pitches, Roy has had a 93% acceptance rate for his stories.   His love of writing has allowed him to share his successful experiences with other writers.

Roy has been featured in The Writer and Writer’s News magazines for his prodigious new writing career.  Writing magazines publishing his work also include The New Writer, Writer's Forum, and AWAI’s The Right Way To Travel.
