Be a Contributor on TLT

Do you LOVE your city? Do you want to tell the world? Then you could be a member of the TLTeam.

We're looking for writers to post about things to do, places to go, sports, fashion, theater, shopping, and more. If you've got a conversational voice, have great grammar and spelling, are active on social media, and are passionate about your city, we'd like to hear from you. 

Our minimum requirement for posting is four articles a month. If you are an expert in your field or have a specific passion you'd like to cover you can apply to be an Xpert. Xperts are expected to write at least eight articles a month and are eligible for our high traffic reward for the most page views. They also receive first access to exclusive media events like theater premieres, dinners at top restaurants, and entry into cool events.

In addition to event coverage and media events we offer behind-the-scenes story ideas so you'll never run out of material to share.

Contributors who post four times a month will receive revenue sharing. Current rate is $1CPM for page views to your articles, photos, and profiles. Once you have been an active member of the team for two months you are also eligible to receive a reward for referring your talented friends to the TLTeam.

Join the TLTeam today and you'll see your city like a Local Tourist.
