How to pitch us freelance stories:

The Keel receives valuable contributions from a network of talented freelance writers, photographers, and videographers. We encourage anyone interested in contributing articles, personal essays, photos, videos, social media projects, or any other creative method of storytelling on a topic or individual within our coverage region to email [email protected] with a pitch describing the story you want to tell, how you plan to tell it, and why you think our audience will be interested.
