Attention: Editors and Publishers

Josh Martin’s School of Simple Living is a humour/advice column about balanced living. Each 600-700 word article begins with a humourous anecdote from my many misadventures. The story is followed by the life lesson I learned from the experience as well as practical tips to help readers live a more balanced and simpler life.

There are several reasons why I feel this column would be an excellent addition to your publication.

  1. It’s relevant. A 2005 study conducted by Statistics Canada revealed that nearly one-third of Canadians consider themselves workaholics. With such a large number of people feeling the time crunch, there is a demand for an advice column that offers practical tips on work-life balance, slowing down and simple living.
  2. It’s affordable. Each 600-700 word article costs only $15 for one-time, nonexclusive rights and a guarantee that the column will not be published in a competing publication. Or, save 33% when you purchase all 52 articles at once for only $520. That’s less than 2 cents per word.
  3. It’s ready-to-go. No need to sweat deadlines with a full year’s worth of weekly articles ready for print. With 52 articles already written – and more being written every week – School of Simple Living offers a reliable bank of engaging content for your publication.
  4. It’s entertaining. Whether driving my scooter through the streets of Taiwan wearing a dress, chasing a thief through back alleys in Africa, rafting down a river in a dugout canoe in the jungles of Ecuador, or fighting cancer here in Canada, the anecdotes in these articles add a unique and hilarious flavour to the column.
