This summer, Coast Weekend will feature stories, photos, videos and audio clips that encapsulate the North Coast.

We want your help to make it happen. We’re looking to add contributors who will produce stories that feature what makes the North Coast unique: our thriving arts scene and the locals who make it happen, fun places to travel and the history behind the place we call home.

Contributors would produce stories for Coast Weekend and Our Coast Magazine.

If you’re interested in contributing, please send an email to with a short description about yourself, your experience and what you’re interested in writing about. Please include one to three examples of published work if possible. Selected contributors will work with editors to get story assignments, all of which are paid.
