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 in Chicago and Milwaukee (launching soon). If you've got a conversational voice and are passionate about your city, you just may find a spot on The Local Tourist. 

If you can write four articles a month (one a week) you'll be eligible for revenue sharing and you'll get paid for traffic to your articles, photos, and even your profile page. Write at least eight articles a month (two a week), and you could win our high traffic reward for the most page views. You can also receive a reward for referring your talented friends to the TLTeam.

Write consistently and you'll get first access to exclusive media events like theater premieres, dinners at top restaurants, and entry into cool events. How cool is that?

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