Submission Guidelines

Gate City Writers Collective welcomes pitches from writers in Guilford County, North Carolina along the following lines:

Essays about life in Greensboro at this moment. Personal voices and anecdotes that give meaning to lived lives in the city.

Reportage on public policy as it specifically relates to Greensboro. 

Interviews with grassroots creatives: artisans, creators, leaders in small business and public policy. 

Feature articles about people, places, events and ideas that contribute to the public understanding of the city. 

At this time, submissions and pitches should be directed to Jeff Sykes at gatecitywriters at gmail dot com

This is an evolving grassroots initiative but we ask that your pitch be as professional as possible. Submissions should be in .doc or .pdf format and comply with AP or Chicago style, given your specific background. 

We ask that submissions be under 1000 words and have an active voice that tells us a compelling story. 

We seek to help writers that help themselves.
