I did a couple articles for the Salt Lake Free Press.
My very first ‘published’ articles. One is satirical, one is straightfoward, about a 23 year old Hemp store owner. A character worthy of one of those Humans of ___ sites.
I was paid $20 for the articles, a year later. Hey, at least the owner kept his word. I cashed the check, and bought a bottle of bourbon. Not a very good one, either.
