Help Wanted: Writers!
As the Union Square Online website celebrates 10 years of serving our community, the blog is seeking neighborhood writers & photographers. Creative volunteers are needed to write approximately a hundred words once a week, once a month, or however often you can. Actually, more words, more frequently from more people would be even better - especially if you can include a photo (or photos) to go with your written contribution.

The idea is to share insights, activities, news and events from our unique community. Join other neighbors who have already contributed as "Guest Authors" and share your own story (or stories). This is a way for potential homebuyers and friends from outside of Union Square to discover us. At the same time, we can all learn a little more about each other.
  • If you're a history buff, this is your opportunity to share some factoids about Union Square.
  • If you have an activity, hobby or club that would interest your neighbors, tell us about it.
  • If you rehabbed or renovated your home, share your tips and tricks so we may all benefit from your experience (and be sure to include "before" and "after" pix).
  • If you own a local business, here's a way to give your enterprise a shout out.
  • If you know a fascinating resident, take a picture and write their story.
  • If you have photos or stories from the Cookie Tour, Sowebohemian Festival, Movies in the Park, or some other neighborhood event, we'd love to see them.
No experience is necessary. Formatting (or spell check) help for your article will be provided if you find the process daunting. Your finished article will publish under your name (or pen name) - or you may choose to just have your name appear as a credit within the article. You may post directly to the blog or you may opt to send your submission(s) via email. Those wanting to whine, gripe, or snipe need not apply. If you want to promote Union Square with upbeat and positive stories, contact Chris Everett to express your interest.
