WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR
Suesblues is an independent platform with a focus on arts and culture, wellness and op-eds.
We are looking to give writers and journalists a voice and a means to contribute original content that provokes thought and encourages open mindedness and discussion.
We are interested in exceptional writing. We seek out writers who are honest, raw and are interested in expanding awareness and offering unique perspectives through their work.
We are seeking integral contributions from local independent journalists and writers who are focused on exceptional craftsmanship and avid detail to the content they create.
We want to make a difference by sharing stories that don’t get the voice or platforms they deserve by exceptional journalists and writers who are wanting to make an impact.
