One of the joyful strengths of local news is discovering writers, columnists, photographers and videographers who enjoy sharing their work. Key West Island News welcomes content contributors who share our mission: Connect Key West residents and friends of the island, foster our One Human Family culture and advance understanding of shared goals for our island community.
Got something to say? A photo or video to share? We’d love to share your columns, articles and photos and videos with our readers. And, someday, when we can afford it, we’ll pay our regular contributors with more than our gratitude.
We do have five house rules. Reading them first will help you understand what you’re getting into.
The two most frequent questions:
1. Will I get paid? Nope. Or at least not in the beginning. I hate saying that. but the fact is, I’m funding this and I simply don’t have spare cash. Someday? I certainly hope so.
2. How do I sign up? Simple. Scroll down — stop in the middle to read the House Rules — then send me a note about what you want to do. We’ll work through the details and get you started.

The house rules
5. NO TROLLS
We start with Number Five: NO TROLLS. This applies to content and comments. It’s my house; my rules. And, I hate unpleasant guests. So if your posts or comments are unpleasant, I’ll ask you to refrain — or depart.
