The ideal candidate is a strong supporter of Wilmington who understands our city's unique identity, deeply values its arts and business communities, and is committed to sharing that story in a positive light. Writers will need to be able to convey a sense of energy and passion for their subjects, inspiring readers to further engage with the topics, events, individuals and organizations presented.
Posts generally will range from 400-1500 words and pay between $50-$250. Occasionally, volunteer posts will also be available (and usually come with free access to a cool event!).
Professional writing experience is preferred but not required, as is Wilmington residency... We'd love charming writers who all live in Wilmington, but the truth is, we appreciate the point of view of any well-written enthusiast!

• Artist / Musician / Organization Spotlight Profiles
