So...I’m pretty sure I’m going to loose out on what’s kind of a dream job (interview lots of human rights activists and write about them) largely because I don’t have much non-academic yet professional writing I can show them.

I’ve been wanting to get more experience with creative non fiction writing anyway. Where do I start? The Google machine has a gazillion answers to this but I’m curious about your experiences. Have any of you successfully submitted to a website or a journal of any kind? What are good ones to start with?
