Behind the scenes development of all things AMIDST
We are looking for Midwest creatives who want to share their stories. AMIDST publishes visually rich, experience-focused stories by creatives of the Midwest. We are looking for content that explores what is means to be a creative human, what it means to be a creative Midwesterner, and pieces that explore creative expression, identity, and experience.
Our eight disciplines (art, beauty, culture, design, fashion, film, music, and photography) are intentionally broad. Stories may fit in more than one category. We are all complicated, multi-faceted individuals and here at AMIDST we celebrate that. We encourage you to fill out the form below to start a conversation. The AMIDST team will reach out to you to follow up on your story and to share contributor compensation information.
