Are you an average to experienced writer who has a love for the city of Boston? Do you want to share this love with the world? We’re looking for general interest writers for another Boston Week, and we’d like to hear from you!
What Is Boston Week?
Historically, Boston Week has been a week-long series of blog posts (one investigative video, and one
podcast radio show episode) drawing hundreds of people from the local Boston community and hundreds of out-of-town and even out-of-country visitors!
For five days in April (17-21, 2023) we give thoughts, opinions, and stories on all things related to Boston. The first year was a huge success, with 9 different contributors posting about music, sports, movies, living away from Boston or growing up here, Marathon Monday, beer, nicknames, etc. The most viewed post ever was during this week eight years ago and each year brings some new posts (and new contributors). We’ve had some really great posts during this week and our Ninth Annual Boston Week is projected to be the biggest yet!
With five days of at least one post a day, and more than 75 total posts, we recommend you browse the Boston Week tab to find what interests you most.
What We’re Looking For
Boston Week over the years has had 19 different contributors, and we’d love to add to that number! We need somewhat smart, a tad curious, maybe a little detail-oriented writers who are comfortable writing about various aspects of life in Boston – past, present or future.
In particular, we’re looking for writers in the following areas:
- Food & Drinks
- Fitness & Health
And don’t worry if you don’t have experience in all those topics. Even if you can write about one or two of them, we want to hear from you.
How to “Apply”
I use “apply” very loosely, because if you want to write, you get to write! It’s that simple. Send a text, tweet or an email to me (@mrflyn325 or firstname.lastname@example.org) expressing your interest and I will literally tell you you’re in! Then, if you need help with ideas, we can brainstorm some together until you come up with something that you’re comfortable writing about.
So what are you waiting for? Let me know already!
