Interested in writing?
Despite the webbiness of the internet, it’s difficult to report on the world from one place. In our case, it’s still difficult from three places. While our respective geographical locations have fortuitously enabled us to cover different regions of America, that leaves a lot of untouched and underrepresented ground. Thankfully, our readers live in different parts of the world, and we would be thrilled if you would help us out!
We want as many perspectives as you’re willing to share, which is why your stories would mean so much to us. No matter where you live, even if it’s in the same city as one of us, you will have something to share, and we want you to share it with us. Do you work an interesting job? Tell us about it. Been to an exciting event of some sort? Let us know. Something happen in the world that you have two pennies on? We’re begging for your two pence! We are, after all, street Urchins.
Just e-mail us at email@example.com (or, if you know us personally, give us a ring or talk to us like real humans are known to do) and tell us about your idea. Have more than an idea? Send us a full draft! We’ll work with you the entire way: offering suggestions, editing if need be – or if you’re close by, buying you coffee (maybe…), but this will be your article. Your thoughts, your words, bottom line.
Below you’ll find our young archive of articles written by Guest Urchins. Be a part of this list!
Something is on your mind. We can tell, and so should you!
