Calling all nosy writers and photgraphers!

We here at Passyunk Post have been blessed with the help of some great contributors but some of our best and brightest have moved on to bigger and better things. So we’d love to wrangle a few more.

So, if you like South Philly so much that you want to tell lots of people about it, then you should email us at

We’ve already expanded past our traditional boundaries of East Passyunk and want to broaden our reach in Pennsport, Newbold, Point Breeze, LoMo, Bella Vista and Graduate Hospital. We need some help doing that through your short news stories and photo essays. You’ll get some exposure for your work, we’ll get some help increasing our coverage area and our readers get more information. Everybody wins.

In your email, please include a paragraph about yourself and why you think you’re right for us. Feel free to include anything that might get our attention, like previous writing/photography experience.

A few caveats (there’s always something, right?). You must live or work in South Philly, you should know the subjects we already cover – development, food, events, quality of life and other city-living issues – and you should be a curious person who has plenty of ideas on what to write about. Also, no real estate pros, sorry.

Send us an email post haste and we’ll be sure to get back to you right away. Thanks.
