Great Lakes Now is a multimedia initiative with a monthly magazine-style television program as well as a website with daily content. Our mission is to bring audiences news and information about the five Great Lakes, the communities that surround them, and the issues affecting those communities, including reports about drinking water quality.

GreatLakesNow.org welcomes pitches from writers of all experience levels on a variety of Great Lakes topics in a range of pieces including longer, in-depth, well-researched pieces on issues affecting the region, shorter features on a person or event in a specific location, and articles about how current policies or dynamics are impacting the Great Lakes, residents and businesses. We would also welcome digital-specific content such as slideshows, short videos and other multimedia work.

Please review our published content to see the kind of stories we share with our audiences.

We especially welcome pitches involving a community or topic Great Lakes Now has not covered extensively or at all.

Email your pitches to Great Lakes Now Program Director Sandra Svoboda at ssvoboda@dptv.org, along with your name and resume or a link to your LinkedIn account.

We look forward to hearing from you.
