Minneapolis Metblog Seeking Authors

The Minneapolis Metblog is having an open call for authors. If you’re a blogger looking for a wider audience, or simply have a desire to write about what’s happening in Minneapolis Saint Paul, keep reading:

The qualifications:

  1. You need to live in or near the Twin Cities metro area – Metblogs is all about the city from the perspective of people who live here.
  2. An ability and willingness to post at least three times a week. You’ve seen our stuff, so you know an entry could simply be a pic, a review of your favorite burger place or a rant about how idiotic our public transportation is.
  3. A desire to cover topics you’re passionate about. We’re looking for unique voices and to more broadly represent the city.
  4. Team players. Authors here don’t always agree with each other, but we’re supportive of each other’s contributions.

Besides the wide audience, the best part of Metblogs is the editorial process: there is none. As long as what you write is about Minneapolis-Saint Paul or specifically relevant to MSP readers, it qualifies. Otherwise, we’re a sandbox for writers to play in, create their own columns and write the stuff they wish existed.

This is an unpaid gig, but you have the opportunity to have your stuff read by our fabulous Minneapolitans on a daily basis. Vloggers, photographers, community journalists, gripers and anyone else with a desire to write about Minneapolis is encouraged to apply.

While already having a blog doesn’t hurt, especially to demonstrate your ability to post frequently, it’s far from a requirement. If interested, send me an e-mail telling us briefly about yourself, blog link (if you have one) and what type of topics you’d like to cover. We’ve got new authors! Hooray!

    […] Metblog is looking for authors. That gig treated me well, but I’ll add that you get out of it what you put into it. What’s in it for you? A more focused audience and they probably have more eyeballs than you do. […]
