I am looking for unique local perspectives on state capitals. The topics can be anything you would like but some sample articles might be:
- Growing up in
- Why I moved back to
- My favorite thing about
I've never been paid to write, but I also don't believe in creating art for "exposure" so I would love to offer some basic compensation for your work.
- $100 for 3000 words.
If you are an underrepresented person the world needs to hear you voice. I hope you will consider this opportunity.
To be considered please send me a short email with the following:
- Your idea, in one or two sentences.
- So What? Why would anyone be interested in reading about your idea? One or two sentences.
- Your background, and any links to personal blogs or writing samples.
I will only accept a handful of submissions per city, so please get in touch if this sounds interesting to you. Looking forward to hearing from you and sharing your work!
For examples of work that has been accepted in the past please check out any of the articles in the Lore section of the website.
