Citizen Journalists Wanted

One of our goals with CitizenWire is to also become a news site where citizens like yourself can be a “local reporter,” for your town/city, or a columnist writing about topics that interest you.

To keep content clean and legitimate, everything is moderated by professional editors; this is not a free site to post paid content, “news spam,” or fake articles you’ve been paid to write on behalf of clients. No “sock puppets” allowed!

We’re a real company, not just a Web site, with nearly 30 years of credibility in the publishing industry. Hopefully you will find what we’re doing here to be interesting, and consider hopping aboard.
