Want to Write for Us?

Behind the Headlines is a community news site and we welcome guest writers and columnists. If you know how to write well and have an interesting topic or relevant issue you’d like to share with our readers, we are interested in hearing from you. We’re also recruiting for reporters and permanent columnists for our future news site.

What We are Looking For

The focus of Behind the Headlines is news but not just boring traditional news. We want more in-depth stories that spur discussion and make our readers think.

Controversy isn’t something we’re ever afraid of. However, if possible, we like “Solutions Journalism” articles that give people the tools they need to respond to problems.

Articles also need to be relevant to a Southern Utah readership.

Areas We Cover at Behind the Headlines

  • Politics
  • Science and Technology
  • Law Enforcement/Firefighters
  • Courts
  • Personalities
  • Community organizations doing amazing things
  • Businesses
  • Government
  • Education
  • Environment
  • National and state issues that may impact and affect Southern Utah residents

If you have an idea for an article or a column, pitch it to us. Be sure to also send a link to your website and/or copies of your work so we can judge you and your character. Just kidding, we just want to know you can write.

All articles, photographs and videos produced for Behind the Headlines must adhere to the Society of Professional Journalists Code of Ethics.
