The Hidden City Daily is looking to bounce into spring with more content, more stories, and better coverage of Philadelphia’s evolving built environment.

We need your help to do it. We’re looking for talented and motivated writers, thinkers, observers, and practitioners to contribute to the Daily. What subjects? Architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, planning, policy, preservation, transit, infrastructure, public art, community development, and real estate development. You have a passion? We can help you fulfill it.

And best of all, you’ll reach a huge and wonderfully engaged readership just as passionate about the life of this city as you are.

Not sure if your idea is right for us? Pitch the story along and we’ll figure it out. The more specific and precise your story ideas are, the better. And, as always, we seek to deliver insight to our readers on why things are the way they are.

How to do it? Contact me directly: npopkin@hiddencityphila.org.
