Help us tell a unique Sarasota story

Our editorial team is looking for Sarasota centered stories in the following categories.

  • Technology
  • Entertainment
  • Arts
  • Culture

Submissions do not need to be focused purely on Sarasota, but they should have some tie back to the local community.

What we are looking for

  • Storylines which are connected to our region, but relevant to a larger national audience.
  • Stories that showcase Sarasota, but also highlight issues which are relevant to other similar sized communities.
  • High quality multimedia content (Video, audio, written, visual art, podcasts, reviews, etc.)
  • Expert op-ed pieces that fall inside one of the categories above.

What we are not looking for

  • Advertorial or self promotional content
  • Obscene or sexually explicit content
  • Storylines which are not directly relatable back to Sarasota or which fall outside of the four major categories listed above

Our audience

  • Averages 80K+ people a month (as high as 250K) and is growing steadily
  • Is almost evenly split between male and female
  • Is primarily between the ages of 25-44
