Join Team Awesome…from time to time!

First off, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for wanting to be a contributing writer! The Awesome Mitten has a completely unpaid staff and we would not be able to exist without you!


I want to write a story – what kind of stories are you guys looking for?
We want to feature any “awesome” people, places, events, bands, businesses, etc that are Michigan based and/or doing good for our state! Take a look at our website to see our past features: we’ve done everything from bars, concerts, and festivals to fruit farms, fundraisers.

How long should my story be?
500 words is our basic rule of thumb, but we’ve got some longer, some shorter.

Do you need pictures?
That would be wonderful please! Video’s are also acceptable. If the pics/media aren’t yours, let us know who to credit them to!

Does my post need to be original and only for the Awesome Mitten? Or can I repost on my blog or another website?
While we love original content, we understand the need for work to be published in multiple places! Cross featured content is acceptable, as long at it links back to the original post on the Awesome Mitten.
