Arts Midwest Calls for Contributing Writers


Arts Midwest is seeking contributing writers who are interested in covering stories about creativity, cultural leadership, and community vitality for our website,

Arts Midwest believes that creativity has the power to inspire and unite humanity. Based in Minneapolis, we grow, gather, and invest in creative organizations and communities throughout the nine-state region of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin, and beyond.

In 2021, we are expanding our editorial reach to publish 30+ stories focusing on creative projects happening across the Midwest. We are looking to build up a pool of freelance writers located across our region who are interested in writing person-focused stories that expand the understanding of what it means to be a Midwesterner and shine light on the creativity happening across the Midwest.

We particularly aim to foster connections with journalists of color, Indigenous journalists, and journalists based in rural areas of the Midwest to deepen our community-centered coverage.

Writers will be compensated $500 for each 800-1000 word article.

If you are interested in becoming part of our contributing writer pool, please submit the following information to Digital Media Producer Alana Horton at alana.horton@artsmidwest by February 28th, 2021, using the subject line Arts Midwest Writer Pool Submission.
