Pohs Privateers

This publication is truly a labor of love. With each new, monthly issue we hope to deliver content that is fun, informative, adventurous, and worthy of an audience that appreciates the merits of a good public house as much as we do. It is our expressed goal to extend our reach nationally and beyond in a very short order. A journey of that magnitude will require a good ship, a fit crew, and full stores.

Since our readers will always receive free, first class passage and compensation for any of their contributions that are featured in future issues, we will need to either become privateers or incorporate advertising into this  magazine. The old guys on the staff carried the vote. We will stand down the Jolly Roger.

We wholeheartedly believe that there should be a symbiotic relationship between our audience and our advertisers. We will strive to present only goods and services that reflect the interests and potential purchase patterns of our readers. Our advertisers' messages will be presented in a style that is creative, visually pleasing, and non-intrusive.

For our sponsors, we will offer customized ad space that will create awareness of your goods, services, and offerings providing our readers with easy single click connections to your company's promotional internet sights.

Submission's Policy

I'm quite sure the entire staff, including myself, would like nothing more than to spend the rest of our stay on planet Earth checking out great taverns, and delivering to our audience stories that capture the heart and soul of these unique places. But alas, our wives, doctors, landlords and assorted lien holders have conspired to strike a somewhat different accord on that matter. While we are not about to hang up our tankards and traveling shoes anytime soon, we will need to employ the talents and keen eyes of our readers in order to realize the full potential of this publication.

So here is the deal. Contact the editorial staff via Email. Tell us a bit about yourself and your favorite pub. Two or three paragraphs will suffice. If possible attach a photo or two that captures the atmosphere and individual characteristics of the establishment.

If we decide to make the journey to write the story we offer you sustenance and libations on us. In the event that we decide that you are better suited to tell the tale we will provide market remuneration for your efforts.

So please include all pertinent contact information with your proposals or suggestions.
