From professional journalists to students and foodies to cartoonists, we’ve published close to 300 diverse contributors around the Northwest region and the world.
Most stories are about 500-800 words, contributors work one-on-one with an editor (often via email), and we pay for every post. Since we believe everyone is an expert on their own experiences, never-before-published writers are encouraged to pitch.

Our editors would love to hear your story idea. Here’s some tips on how to send us your pitch:
Get to know our publication. The Seattle Globalist publishes stories that connect our region to the world. So look for a global spin on a local story or a local spin on a global story. Look for what we have already done on the topic.
Tell us who the story is about. Who are the specific people affected by the larger news story, trend or topic?
Explain “why now?” Is your idea currently in the news cycle? Are there related upcoming events, holidays or other date pegs that makes your idea timely? (Trending topic, conversations, again, why are we telling this story now?)
Use your personal voice/experience. We like writers who speak from experience and write with a strong voice.
Don’t pitch us an organization/business profile. What makes your idea timely? Is the organization launching a new program, releasing a new report or hosting an upcoming event?
Send your pitches to firstname.lastname@example.org.
