Deep River, CT (PRWEB) April 26, 2007
After many years on the web and with a worldwide following, lifeintheusa.com is now actively seeking well-written contributions from outside journalists and writers.
Topic areas on the http://www.lifeintheusa.com site include the American people, culture, law, organizations, food and cooking, government, history, religion, business, finance, employment, immigration, medical care, aging, education, transportation, community, shopping, restaurants, and everyday American life. There is even a final section covering American attitudes toward death.
Students around the world have been accessing the lifeintheusa.com site to gather topic ideas for their research. Life In The USA Magazine accepts essays from outside journalists and subject area experts on subjects as diverse as office politics, home building, sports fishing, race relations, poverty and women's issues. A number of young writers have been published in the magazine, gaining valuable exposure as well as significant guidance in their writing efforts.
For the new section on organizations, fraternal, charitable, educational and other organizations (and their members) are welcome to submit accurate, well-written essays that explain the place of the organization in American society.
Site founder Elliot Essman initially compiled what he considered an exhaustive array of subject subdivisions, but reflects that a single point of view, however wide-ranging, is never enough. He'd like to see new sections on matters as diverse as gay marriage, bureaucracy, public health, sports, teen fads and fashions, school violence, reality television, celebrities, body piercing, outlet malls: any area of American life that could use some explaining to someone coming from another country or culture. Many of the existing sections need revision and significant expansion. The site's revision hence affords an excellent forum for writers wishing to gain wider exposure on the web.
New controversial points of view are welcome, as long as they are responsibly presented and fit in with the general theme of explaining what American life is all about.
