Write for Us

Do you love the desert and love letting your opinions be heard, good or bad? Do you enjoy expressing your food & dining experiences, or conveying your impressions of the arts & entertainment scene in our area? Would you like to share your thoughts on home & garden issues? Or do you simply enjoy being a conversation starter?

As a columnist on, you’ll be able to help lead a dialogue that anyone in the community can participate in within one of our four categories. Whether you already blog (and struggle to get more than 10 or 20 people to read it) or you’re merely the friendly person in line at the grocery store talking up your neighbors, we want to hear from you!

Our print columnists will be blogging online here, and you can join them.  We're looking for Local Voices from around the desert as we build our online community for the region.  From Calexico to Lone Pine, and everywhere in between, if you've got a passion you'd like to share, let us know.

Oh, and we'll be picking some of the best submissions in our Local Voices contest, and handing out some nice prizes as well.  Don't miss out - join us at
