reporter seeking interview subjects for national magazine feature

Reporter87March 5, 2013

Hello, everyone!

I'm a reporter working on a large Father's Day-related story for a large national magazine feature and I'm looking for people who can share interesting stories of useful, practical and/or interesting skills they learned from their dads.

Do any of you have a fascinating story about a hands-on, technical skill in PAINTING that your father taught you that you'd be interested in sharing?

I'm seeking unique, diverse, and detailed 100-250 word stories with step-by-step instructions to impart readers with actionable, "how-to" information.

Please e-mail the following for consideration:
-Topic of your story.
-Your age.
-Your profession.

Email: interviewrequests@zoho.com

Approved subjects will be notified, then asked to submit their story, so please do not send stories at this time.

If selected for publishing, this could make for a really awesome father's day present!

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Just painting? I grew up in an old 100 yr house that my dad gutted and renovated and here I am doing the same thing! I suspect a lot of us ladies wielding power tools had a similar experience - dads teaching us.
