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 publish long-form feature articles, op-ed articles, and art.

Simply follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. Read and share our articles with everyone you know, or donate to continue uplifting the stories of our people.

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.
