I am trying to apply to jobs at freelancewriting.com that ask for me to forward 3 clips. My clips are either( not that recent) newspaper clips or, for example, a short story (inspirational category) which placed in a Writers Digest contest. I am picking up my pen after a ten year interlude due to family stresses so I am behind the curve about online applications.
1. Do I scan my newspaper articles and send in as attached files along with the required resume and cover letter?
2. Is sending attached files with my email okay as long as the source does not specifically state "no attachments accepted"?
3. Does it bother anyone but me when sources ask you to copy and paste into the body of the email and it destroys all the formatting?
Thank you for your input.
