Write For The Local, and Join Us This Summer


Want to write for The Local? Good! We want you to write for us! Whether you’ve witnessed something amazing or amusing, we’d love to hear your East Village story. And we’d also like to know what you think we should be writing about. So, e-mail us – often!

And are you a high school or college student interested in reporting the neighborhood this summer? Then register for our Summer Academy. This summer, you can live in the East Village and learn the basics (if you’re a beginner) or the finer points (if you already have some experience) of multimedia community journalism from faculty members of the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute, which produces The Local in collaboration with The New York Times. You’ll be immersed in a professional newsroom environment and may even have the opportunity to appear in these pages. For more about the program, and to register, see here.
