Wanna Write for

Sign up for the best newsletter EVER!

Do you find yourself reading this site and thinking, “I’m young, broke, beautiful, AND I can write better than these chumps!”?  If so, now is your time to prove it.

We’re currently looking to expand our author pool in San Francisco and New York and we’re hoping that you, our dear and deranged readers, might wanna get in on the action.  If you’re snarky, know what’s happening in your town, and good at making your fingers type out funny words, then you might be just the person we’re looking for.

I’m gonna be 100% honest with you from the start and let you know that, at this point, payment doesn’t really exist.  But don’t feel bad about it, my name’s on the fucking site and I don’t really even make any money.  That said, it’s a great place to get clips and many of our writers have gone on to write for people that can actually pay then.

Best Newsletter Ever!

Join our weekly newsletter so we can send you awesome freebies, weird events, incredible articles, and gold doubloons (note: one of these is not true).

Here’s how it works.  You’re gonna drop us a line at either or,  Then the we will have you send us a couple writing samples, and then after that, well…that’s what dreams are made out of.

Looking forward to hearing from you!!

Broke-Ass Stuart - Editor In Cheap

Stuart Schuffman, aka Broke-Ass Stuart, is a travel writer, poet, TV host, activist, and general shit-stirrer. His website is one of the most influential arts & culture sites in the San Francisco Bay Area and his freelance writing has been featured in Lonely Planet, Conde Nast Traveler, The Bold Italic, and too many other outlets to remember. His weekly column, Broke-Ass City, appears every other Thursday in the San Francisco Examiner. Stuart’s writing has been translated into four languages. In 2011 Stuart created and hosted the travel show Young, Broke, and Beautiful on IFC and in 2015 he ran for Mayor of San Francisco and got nearly 20k votes.

He's been called "an Underground legend": SF Chronicle , "an SF cult hero": SF Bay Guardian, and "the chief of cheap": Time Out New York.

    Hi! I went to UCSC with Stuart and freelance write/edit–most recently for SOMA Magazine in SF. I would love to pick up a few fun articles for the Web site, and I don’t need to get paid…just enjoy writing and heart my city. Thanks very much!
