Sample Press Trip Query for MatadorU

Dear Gaylene,

My name is Kyle Ellison, and I am a freelance outdoor and adventure travel writer with connections to various outlets in both print and online media. Aside from the freelance market, I am also the founder of the online travel site which receives approximately 2,000 unique visitors per month, many of whom are avid outdoor travelers based here in the United States.

In late October my wife and I (who is a photographer)  are going to be embarking on a cross country road trip and our route will be taking us directly through Pagosa Springs. Throughout the journey I plan on pitching articles and formulating online content from an angle that focuses on exploring destinations that are off the beaten path yet still ripe with outdoor and cultural opportunities. The invitation you currently have out for journalists to experience Pagosa Springs seems to be a perfect fit for the types of places I am planning to highlight. As a journalist who formulates a large amount of online content, I also plan to market the places I visit extensively over a full array of social media networks and online forums.

Should you have an interest in working with freelance journalists aiming to promote areas of the country such as Pagosa Springs I would love to be in touch further. Thank you very much for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you shortly.


Kyle Ellison
