City Guides (Seattle)

Your mission is to reach a small group of people that are as unique, and dare we say, as weird as you. You are being called to lead your tribe. Your vessel — a guide to Seattle experiences that almost no one will appreciate, but a select few will embrace passionately.

Your primary responsibility is to create a guide that your tribe will stay up all night long waiting for. Sitting on the edges of their proverbial chairs, your followers should be desperately refreshing your page, waiting to see what magical experience you’ve deigned to share.

The topic of your guide will be one of your choosing. The options are limitless: it could be for people who obsess over burlesque, fitness competitions, vegan food, dive bars, or those who are nuts about dressing their dogs in the latest hipster fashions. Most importantly, the guide should cover something that you know and love. Ideally, it’ll be about a lifestyle that you’re already living (and writing!) about.

We’ll pay $20 for every experience submitted that we deem worthwhile and interesting. We promise not to be prissy-prudes, and our hope is to accept most posts. However, if you feel that we aren’t being fair, you can always stop writing. We know this must be an equitable relationship.

Compensation: $20 per article ( 16 per month)
