Fun fact: Founding father Benjamin Rush wrote for the Rag in the 18th century, back when it was literally printed on rags and mostly covered farming techniques. Painting by Charles Wilson Peale.
There are so many intriguing stories on the Upper West Side right now, and too few people to write them. So we’re looking for writers. We can assign the stories, or you can pitch us. Some stories involve attending and reporting on meetings — those may take just a couple of hours. Others involve a little more legwork.
Importantly, West Side Rag pays for stories, and we’ve worked with people who have varying levels of experience. If you’re interested, email westsiderag at gmail dot com with the subject line “I’d like to write for the Rag!”
