WhatcomTalk writers all live, work and play in the community. These paid, professional writers are your neighbors. They tell stories, on a daily basis, about our community.

“I’ve been fortunate to work for amazing publishing companies over the course of my career, beginning at Better Homes and Gardens magazine, and later writing for Whatcom County newspapers and magazines,” says WhatcomTalk Community Manager, Stacee Sledge. “But nothing as been as fulfilling as helping to build WhatcomTalk with the support of our amazing team.”

Before joining the freelance writing team, WhatcomTalk writers submit a writing sample, attend an interview, and are then invited to pitch story ideas. “Because our article ideas are generated by our writers, they are a solid reflection of the community,” explains WhatcomTalk Publisher, Amy Rowley.

“What I love about WhatcomTalk is the ability to pitch and explore the inspiring stories that I see happening before me in Whatcom County,” says WhatcomTalk writer Theresa Golden. “There are a lot of really unique people in this area that have a lot to give and a lot to be proud of.
