Call for Contributors!

BorderstanHave something to say? We want to hear it! So do our readers (we promise)!

We’re on the lookout for a few new contributors to join our team who can write new stories and help with copyediting to keep our site looking good with fresh ideas. If you have a strong interest in your neighborhood, love to write and want a creative outlet, then we want you to join us and share your voice with the rest of Borderstan.

What do we look for in our contributors?

  • Residence in the Borderstan area: Dupont, Logan and U Street areas preferred.
  • Ability to quickly research and write stories. Experience in journalism, publications, public relations, corporation communications or marketing is a plus.
  • Knowledge of WordPress, our content management system, or an ability to learn the basics.
  • Understanding that the news often requires a balance of serious journalism with a good sense of humor.

Ready to dive in? Send an email to Mike, Borderstan’s HR guy, at mike@borderstan.com. Let him know what your connection to the neighborhood is, and what kind of stories you’d be interested in writing. If you have it, send over a link to your blog or a (brief) writing sample.

That’s it! Hope to see your words on the site real soon.
