    Useless Knowledge Magazine

    I have received an email from someone claiming to be the editor of this magazine, asking if I would like to be a columnist for them.
    I am naturally suspicious; I am a columnist for two magazines here in Ireland but according to the email, it was my profile on this site that they picked up on which does not mention my current magazine writing. I checked out their website - it does exist, and I searched for it rather than click the link provided - however, I am still suspicious that it is not genuine on the grounds that writing "jobs" rarely come out of the blue unsolicited.
    Does anyone have any knowledge or experience of this emagazine please?

    Nope, none. But it's not overly unusual for start-ups to troll writing boards for cheap (read "free" ) content providers.

    Gill, you registered here at WN only yesterday, the 5th. And already you've received an email from an "editor"? Wow, that's quick work on their part! :S

    I was just going to say: at this point I would go for some free publicity, or rather resumee padding.

    You know, saying that I have published such and such, here and there?

    Where are there gigs like that to be had?
