Writing for The Searcher
If you’ve found something interesting and would like to share your excitement with others, then I am able to help, especially if your writing skills are a little rusty. Or perhaps you would prefer to compose something yourself, and/or your potential article is not about artefacts you’ve unearthed, but a subject that would appeal to all detectorists.
Whatever way you choose, I will guide you, but only if needed, and present your story in the best possible way. Remember, The Searcher is primarily interested in your story and one that has been tailored especially for the magazine.
Payment is always a possibility and the amount can vary depending on several factors, including length, exclusivity, quality of pictures, and so on. You won’t be able to retire on the fee, but you will have the satisfaction of saying that you’ve had your story published in a high quality, well-produced global magazine.
Interested in having your article published? For help, guidance or just a general chat contact me, John Winter, on 07594 360 649. Alternatively, send me an email email@example.com

DETECTIVAL Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th SEPTEMBER15th September 2018
112days to go.
… to all those people who have visited my blog. I hope that you found your time here enjoyable, interesting and perhaps useful. A comment would be appreciated. Guest posts are also a possibility.
You will find posts about metal detecting matters on here, but perhaps the approach is different to what you might expect; I will occasionally talk about other subjects that take my fancy …

I regret to inform you that my friend Jim Halliday died peacefully on June 26 at the age of 81, surrounded by his family. Me old Ma would have said that he’d had a ‘good innings’ and that’s true, but it still comes as a shock.
When I first start writing, he was one of my mentors, always willing to help by giving advice, encouragement and support. I regret the passing of a first-class detectorist and ‘gentleman’ in every sense of the word.
In December 2010 he wrote his last Retrospect column for The Searcher magazine and I took over in the New Year, honoured to be following in his footsteps. He gave me free rein to use information from over 3000 sheets of information that he had recorded. I also know that he did a great deal of voluntary work with the York Archaeological Trust and helped at PAS identification days held at York Museum.
I shall miss his emails commenting – and sometimes congratulating me – on my writing. In the future whenever there is a new post to be written, I shall be conscious of Jim’s guiding hand. His passing has left a void in many people’s lives, but they are undoubtedly better people for having known a great guy! The details for Jim’s funeral have now been finalised and can be found here: http://www.jimhalliday.com/funeral/
