Pitch us your ideas for stories and podcasts!

Postindustrial welcomes pitches for narrative non-fiction, journalism and essays, as well as submissions of photography projects, audio.

Think of Postindustrial as Texas Monthly for the Rust Belt — a place where major feats of investigative and narrative journalism can live alongside light-hearted prodding of politicians and profiles of people building new businesses. It’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with our stories and style before you submit. All you have to do is browse through our stories. 

To pitch, fill out the form or send an email to No need to make it long or drawn out — just a couple paragraphs about the idea and why it needs to be a story. Also include a paragraph about who you are and why you’re the person to write it.
