Become a Writer!

Anyone can be a ニュース.com writer. While we certainly welcome professional writers and journalists to contribute, this site is meant for anyone that wants to share local news they see happening around them. Whether you are a high school student with an interest in journalism or a retiree working for a local civic association, your contributions are welcome here. To get started, please follow these simple steps:

  1. Review our guidelines.
  2. Create an account and verify your email address.
  3. Update your profile to be associated with your articles.
  4. Start writing articles!

Initially, you will be able to write and submit articles but they won’t be published automatically. An editor will review and publish them if they meet our guidelines. This will typically happen in less than 24 hours. After a while, you may be promoted to a writer that can publish immediately, without an editor’s approval. Your articles will still be reviewed, and removed if they don’t meet our guidelines, but there won’t be any delay before initial publication.

If you are writing more than a paragraph or two, you may want to write your article on your computer first and then copy and paste it into the online submission form.
