Storybank Pitches

Our Storybank provides a place where the community can pitch stories to our reporters, and reporters can find story ideas. Since all of our reporters are volunteers, your pitches are not guaranteed to be picked up for a story on The Rapidian. But we'll do what we can!

To pitch a story to our citizen journalists, scroll down the page and fill in the information requested in the short form. You must be signed in with your user account to pitch a story.
