Urban Omnibus welcomes unsolicited submissions and content suggestions via email at email@example.com or through the form below. Our criteria for publication are best understood by a close reading of the content previously published on the site. Our weekly features are primarily first-person accounts of projects in or perspectives on the urban built environment of New York City that are interdisciplinary, innovative, and oriented towards the public interest. Posts to our forum include reported pieces that recap or review events, exhibitions, or urban explorations; presentations of bodies of work by artists inspired by or working in the city; and updates on events and news relevant to our editorial scope.
Submissions for features are accepted on a rolling basis in the form of an emailed manuscript (under 2,000 words) or of a short pitch paragraph that offers an overview of the topic or project proposed and a provisional schedule of execution. We also accept proposals for multi-media pieces. In all cases, producing a feature for Urban Omnibus is a collaborative and iterative process with a hands-on editorial team committed to finding the most revelatory ways to publish stories that define and enrich the culture of citymaking.
In addition to accepting pitches and submissions, we maintain a list of writers to contact when we are seeking coverage of an event or issue. Those interested in being on that list can fill out the form below or email firstname.lastname@example.org, and should indicate topics of interest and include writing samples (as links or attachments).
Urban Omnibus is powered by a diverse group of journalists, architects, planners, designers, artists, activists, scholars and citizens, all of whom contribute their knowledge, opinions, and expertise to this project.
