CityWide Stories: Pitch Form
Thanks for your interest in pitching to CityWide Stories!
CityWide Stories is a place for discovery. We are looking for underreported stories across neighborhoods in Philadelphia and Camden. We want readers to find out about new and interesting things, places, people and local businesses.
We’ve been on the Philadelphia scene as Flying Kite Media since 2010, and relaunched as CityWide Stories in 2017. Before pitching, please review some stories on
for an idea of our style and focus areas. Our fees for articles and other media are negotiated on a per-project basis.
CityWide's coverage areas include:
- Doers: stories, photo essays, and profiles on makers, builders, businesses
- Places: features, photo essays, and updates on neighborhoods, green spaces and green building initiatives
- The Report: long form articles covering science, tech, health, policy
- Exchanges: profiles and q&as with locals, first person narratives, culture pieces
