Article Submission

Submit a CD review or concert review.

Submit a neighborhood news story.

Submit a travel story.

Submit a cover story: The Reader is primarily interested in articles about the San Diego region, which we consider to include Imperial County and Baja. Stories of national scope are rarely published. If a story idea has already received publicity in other local publications or news media, our interest is diminished.

We are not interested in receiving fiction, poetry, commentary, weekly columns, or critiques of film, theater, or restaurants. We will consider articles that range from 1200 to 6500 words. Payment schedules vary. In most cases, once a story has been purchased, we will make arrangements for a photographer or illustrator.

Email manuscripts to Reader.Manuscripts@gmail.com. Include your name, address, and phone number. We no longer accept paper manuscripts.

Event Submissions

Submissions must include: a complete description, date(s), time, cost, place and address where the event will be held.

We post events for San Diego and Imperial counties. Due to space limitations, only a portion of the events posted online will be published in our weekly print edition. To guarantee that your event is published both online and in print, call 619-235-8200 to inquire about a paid listing.

Job Openings

We do not have an internship program; we will not be implementing one.

We rarely (almost never) hire graphic artists or photographers.

Writers are encouraged to submit neighborhood news, CD & concert reviews, or travel stories. Woo us with actual reporting, not a cover letter written to impress your creative-writing teacher.

Sales reps with significant experience selling advertising, both print and online, are encouraged to submit their resumes along with a cover letter.

Due to the high volume of resumes we receive, we cannot notify you when your resume arrives or send you a "sorry" letter. If you hear from us, we're interested. If you don't, we're sorry.
