Become a WW contributor

We are always seeking new contributors, especially for our arts and culture 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 Arts and Culture Editor Robin Bacior with samples of your work.

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 today.
