Join the Team


Do you have a creative talent for writing? Are you someone who loves sharing their thoughts and is willing to engage in a tumultuous environment filled with sharks and piranhas who love to eat goldfish without a second thought? If you don’t mind being eaten alive while having a laugh or two, then submit a sample of your writing style at social@iurban.org. Address your letter heading to Team iUrban, and we will be sure to get back to you in about two years or so. Oops, we mean ASAP! Thank you.

If you’re an author– or an expert in your field — and would like to contribute to iUrban, you can participate in many ways; some are paid positions and others exposure opportunities.

Who is iURBAN looking for?

Who we’re looking for: Are you out and about — frequenting clubs, shows, restaurants, and attending special events in your local area [and national events]? Then we want you! In an effort to build the largest urban resource destination on the web, our mission is to also provide information about the best venues and events that our community members can attend in real life.

Can we assist with press passes? Yes. To many events we can arrange on your behalf free plus one access to shows, venues and events as a member of the press.

We provide sponsors with a display add, shout-outs in our newsletter and social pages, and occasional profiles and interviews about, or with, them.

Can you earn? Yes, you can.
