Have you ever wanted to have your writing published in a magazine? Here’s your chance!

Trending Northwest covers a wide array of subjects, from things to do, eat, see, experience, and much, much more. If it’s related to anything trending or relevant happening in the Northwest, send it our way. We are always looking for new voices to contribute to the magazine, so don’t hesitate to shoot your shot.

How? It’s simple.

You can reach out to our publishers on social media, email us at [email protected] or send an inquiry to the contact form on our website anytime.

We value diverse voices that add dimension to the digital landscape in the Northwest – you can even plug your own stuff, as long as you’ve informed the reader of that throughout your article.

  1. Articles must be 800-1000 words (this isn’t Yelp – we want more info than a typical review!)
