Attention Writers!

Edgy, smart, in-the-know writers—we want YOU. Do your friends currently tap you for what’s new/now/next around Raleigh? Have writing chops? If you are obsessed with all-things Raleigh and can write on brand in Raleigh Magazine‘s voice, you may be able to join our cadre of accomplished contributors.

Before pitching, if you don’t already know our vibe, get to know us—what we cover, our voice, our brand, our MO. Follow us on Insta; pick up an issue around town (click “where to find” at bottom of website); and subscribe to our free newsletter.

How to be considered: Shoot an email to (cc with the subject line “Raleigh Mag Contributor.” Must Include: Your LinkedIn link (or brief bio if unavailable), two previous writing samples (or link to your online portfolio; and preferably clips relevant to our voice/context), and one to two solid pitches. The pitch(es) should be audience appropriate, on-brand, in our voice and speak to what’s buzzy in Raleigh—something you think we would run in an upcoming issue. If you nail it, we’ll be in touch stat! (Know AP Style? Bonus!)

What not to pitch: We don’t typically write newcomer guides or roundups aimed solely at newcomers, but we sincerely work to make each issue the most invaluable tool in town to aid all Raleighites (from newbies to lifers) in staying in-the-know on what’s new/now/next.
