Write for us

NJ INDY is looking for people who have a passion for storytelling, and for New Jersey. Whether you tell stories through writing, photography, video, poetry, Twitter threads, memes, whatever—we want to hear from you.

Experience writing or otherwise creating for a media organization is a plus, but if you have the passion to find and tell interesting stories, and a passion for building community in New Jersey, we’ll work with you to smooth out the edges.

We’re looking for storytellers who are curious about and engaged with their communities.

We want stories, in various media, on arts, food, social justice issues, recreation, the environment, local government, LGBT+ issues, health care, education—chances are if you have the passion for an issue/subject, we have the space.

We pay. Maybe not much here in the startup phase, but we pay. As we grow, we’ll pay more. And as we grow our team with salaried storytellers, we’ll look to our pool of freelancers for good fits.

If you’re interested, send a resume, a few clips or link to an online portfolio, and some words about your experience, passion and ideas for stories to matt@njindy.com. Let’s talk.
