Sometimes you don't have time to write a story yourself.

Sometimes the story is about you.

So what do you do when writing an article yourself just isn't going to work? Pitch it to our reporters in our Storybank. Using this simple form, as shown in the above screencapture video, will let our reporters know of a story in need of covering. 


The Storybank: it's your direct line to our citizen journalists.

The Rapidian, a program of the 501(c)3 nonprofit Community Media Center, relies on the community’s support to help cover the cost of training reporters and publishing content.

We need your help.
