Charlotte Contributor exists to publish the voices of the people who live in and around this city. If you have something to say, we want to hear it. If we like it a lot, we’ll make you a verified contributor and pay you for each article you post. It’s as simple as that. Share your work with us below.

We understand your work may require additional photography or other media to expand upon it. We can talk about all of that later. For now, we just need the text of your work so we can run it through our, uh, rigorous editorial standards.
