Pitch a Story

If you have an idea for a story or a photo essay, please email your pitch (don’t write a finished article) to editor@hiddencityphila.org. Keep the pitch short–a paragraph or two at most–and explain what the story is about. Articles should relate in some way to Philadelphia’s built environment, and contain a timely hook that answers the question, why are we writing about this now?


Whether you’ve seen something amazing, like a shuttered textile mill with its machinery intact—or something troubling, like a lovely old church facing the wrecking ball–drop us a line and let us know.
