We work with community journalists from the 956 and the surrounding Mexican border region. You don’t need to be a professional writer. You just need to have a story to tell. To learn more about how to write for us, visit our page.
We do not accept any articles or writing aimed to market or sell products. We do not hire people to write press releases, listicles, or product reviews. Any pitches sent to us on behalf of a company or nameless member of your team will be rejected.
Ponte Trucha is a Mexican slang term for ‘pay attention. It signifies a means of survival and resilience where one is aware of their surroundings for themselves and their community.
We publish stories for our community (Hidalgo, Starr, Willacy, Cameron County), which include: the working class, artists, dreamers, organizers, family, and neighbors. Our untold stories of the RGV should be shared with the world.
