The Local Spotlight

The Local Spotlight features non-profit organizations and grassroot mobilization efforts.

The Local Spotlight goes behind the scene to non-profit and grassroots mobilization organizations, and the people who work for organization that perform public or community services. The Local Spotlight is a place where you can share behind the scenes peeks at what you do, why you do it, and the impact aimed for.

Essential details included about local organizations/changemakers include: What problem does the organization seeks to solve? Why is this an issue? Where is the organization located, and how long have they been operating? What is a day of work like? Who is served by the work? How do donations and funding transform into value? How does this work change the world for the better? How do people find out more information about the organization, about volunteering at their local center, and/or about good cause promotional charity drives? (as relevant)

Columns may also include interviews, or interview quotes in a larger framework, with people who both work and who are impacted by the work of organizations aiming to bring about good to the world by reversing inequality, lifting, protecting, partnering with, and supporting oppressed and vulnerable populations. Stories on organizations involved with poverty alleviation, restorative justice, community empowerment, and environmental protection are as welcome as local centers of art, performance, and local business social campaigns for good causes.

Articles should be 750-2000 words in length, provide at least two citations or links for source material, and fit the column you’re submitting for. Photography, art, and all submissions should list all proper credit to be attributable on publication. Videos should be 2-10 minutes. Longer videos may be considered in the future.* You may submit previously published work with links to the original work, your own website, or sales page, so long as the copyright of such does not interfere with the previous/other place something is published. If accepted, authors will be notified within two weeks, and sent proofread copies of submitted work for approval pre-publication. Though there is an editorial review, decently polished drafts are appreciated. At present, contributors have the benefit of exposure for work, connection with new audiences, a updated writing sample, and a public website publication credit for your resume. A kickstarter, donation acceptance and paid subscription plans for premium content are the ultimate goals. All contributors will also have a free premium subscription access for the issue submitted to, one month free community access (creative pages + forum), and a free e-copy of the released compilation issue e-book on Amazon and possibly other release sites.* *see specifics here:
