The TipLine

Our goal is to discover, share, and raise up local art and music. We are always looking for a tip about what and who is doing something new and interesting. If that is you or someone you know, drop us a line at and include “The Tipline” in the subject.

Want to see your writing appear in SkipFiction? We’re always looking for contributors, regardless of frequency that you want to write. From a one-off op-ed to regular, in-depth storytelling and reporting, we are interested and excited about what you have to say.

Our editorial staff is active and ready to help your writing be the best that it can be while covering the artists we love.

There are no limits on what we will accept in terms of style or word count. We will accept what we feel is fitting for the site, but we are interested in everything from album reviews, to photo essays, to narrative journalism. Don’t be shy, we’re always glad to hear from you. Catch our attention at and include “New Contributor” in the subject. Tell us about your pitch and attach any files of the piece you’re working on. We are available for developmental editing during the writing process if you’re looking for some advice as well.
