We have to point out that although the name sounds as though the Feature Writer Access Project is for new writers, it is not. It is, in fact, for three specific groups of established professionals, “minority, female and age 60+ writers” – who have been discriminated against for decades. So if you’re a newb, please pass this info on to anyone you know who’s eligible.

We think you’ll be glad you did.

EDITOR’S NOTE: When we went looking for an image that could illustrate the concept of helping others we found that although there are many online images mocking the concept of helping an older person cross the street, we could only find sympathetic, non-ironic pics set in foreign countries. Food for thought, you know…?
