Join Team Awesome As A Regional Correspondent!

Awesome Mitten Regional Correspondent If you’re one of our devoted readers who loves Michigan as much as Team Awesome and have wondered how to get involved without having to write or take pictures, we’ve got the perfect job for you.

The Awesome Mitten editorial staff is now accepting applications for REGIONAL CORRESPONDENTS. We need YOU to tell us what’s happening in your neighborhood!


A regional correspondent is responsible for very little. The expectations are:

1.) You live in the mitten! Preferably close to one of our great state’s seven major cities (Detroit, Grand Rapids, Lansing, Ann Arbor, Kalamazoo, Traverse City, or Marquette). Live somewhere else? Apply anyway! We want you involved!

2.) You know at least a little bit about the fantastic goings-on near you,

3.) You can report at least two of those exciting things to us every week.


In return for helping us out, you’ll be entered to win exclusive prizes in monthly drawings AND get media access to select events!

Don’t live in the state of Michigan anymore?  Don’t worry, we’re cooking up something good for you too – check back on June 6th, 2013.

The Awesome Mitten was born when I moved back to Michigan from Nashville, TN in September 2010. Almost immediately, I became frustrated. I couldn’t figure out why there weren’t more Michigan residents singing our states praises! I was so irritated, I wrote a Letter to the Editor. Three weeks later, I had started a Facebook page, a Twitter account, and a landing page for the website, determined to do something to make Michigan residents aware of all the cool things going on in their own state.
