Contribute or Intern

Become a WW contributor

We are always seeking new contributors, especially for our music and movies sections and ever more especially if you have a strong voice and a fresh perspective.

Previews and reviews need to be well-informed and full of vivid details. We are looking for writers who are deeply interested in their subject, willing to the necessary research and aren't afraid to give strong opinions. We are not interested in scenesters who want to write about their friends' projects—there are other publications in town that would be thrilled to have you.

If you think you’re a fit, introduce yourself in an email to Andi Prewitt (food, drink, other arts and culture stories) or Bennett Ferguson (music, visual arts, movies) with samples of your work.

Intern for WW

Willamette Week offers three-month internships in various departments throughout the year. To find out more about our internship programs and how to apply, please see below.

News reporting internships

WW offers three-month news internships throughout the year. The news internships require a time commitment of 20 hours a week. In the belief that experience is the best teacher, the internship provides opportunities to write for both and the print edition.

To apply for a news internship, send your resume and three news clips (or writing samples) to News Editor Aaron Mesh.

Willamette Week’s reporting has concrete impacts that change laws, force action from civic leaders, and drive compromised politicians from public office. Support WW’s journalism through our Give!Guide Fundraising page.
