What to Submit
We like stores about local businesses, artists, sports, government, and more. On issues of public opinion, we appreciate honest and well-researched op-eds and letters to the editors on locally impactful issues.
We typically focus on the written word first and subsequently translate that story to mediums of photography, video, and voice. Nonetheless, if you want to contribute from a medium other than written word, we love working in those formats too.
You are encouraged to write in the voice you would use in an email to a well-regarded neighbor or a professor you respect. Keep it conversational, informed, blunt-but-not-rude, impassioned-but-balanced. We do not stick to AP Style and accept the local vernacular as it comes. Your education level will not affect your submission. Word length between 400 and 1,200 words is recommended, but deviate from that as appropriate for the story.
Photography, Video, and Voice submissions
We tend to follow the formats that work best for social media platforms here. If you have a submission for one of these mediums, please be sure to consider how well it would fit into your own social media consumption. Please contact us for further guidance if needed.
How To Submit
Please submit the text in the body of an email and any image, video, or audio files attached. Send to email@example.com.
A Note On Payment
NFKVA.com is driven by love of community and runs on a very bare-bones business model. That’s how we survive in today’s media market. There simply is not payment for every article we run. However, there are regular paid opportunities for contributors – but rarely for a first submission. We offer a diverse range of paid opportunities but our standard payment is $50 for 500 words.
We also accept press releases, news tips, interesting tidbits from across the community. We also need contributors who are willing to edit content, act in content, and be covered for content.
If you’re a particularly passionate fan, we can add you to our share squad. You’ll get access to new stuff before everyone else and get special perks from time to time.

What We Feature
We love to amplify artists, designers, photographers, and small businesses alike. We look for items that are additive to the local culture, feats of artistic talent, or correspond to articles that are featured on the site.
How To Submit
If you think you have a product that would be appropriate for the shop, submit a description, photos, and any links to the product on social media. Submit to: Paul@nfkva.com.
How We Pay
We feature a diverse array of products, so there’s no one size fits all policy. $500 furniture and $3 stickers won’t get the same deal.
That said, we strive to offer a standard deal as often as possible. If you’re interested in learning more email firstname.lastname@example.org
