We’re Looking for East Bay Writers!

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Do you find yourself reading this site and thinking, “Not only do I know all about the East Bay, 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 the East Bay (plus we’re open to other locales as well) 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.

And the best part is, we pay! Payment starts at $10 an article and then scales up depending on views. The pay is shit but we’re punk as fuck. And it’s a great place to get clips, many of our writers have gone on to write for outlets like Vice, the San Francisco Chronicle, SFist and more.

Here’s how it works. You’re gonna drop us a line at: 

Please send a writing sample and tell us what you’re interested in writing about. And then after that, well…that’s what dreams are made out of.

Looking forward to hearing from you!!
