Call for contributors

Are you curious about Akron’s people, neighborhoods, traditions and ideas? Do you like talking to those people, exploring those neighborhoods and sharing those ideas? Are you seeking an engaged, dedicated, fun group of Akronites dedicated to celebrating what’s great about the city, understanding its challenges and tackling them head-on?

Then you’re one of us. The Devil Strip is always looking for writers, illustrators, photographers, designers, salespeople, delivery drivers, and community builders to find and surface Akron’s stories. We’re here to help you develop your talents and interests, too.

If you or a friend are interested in getting involved, reach out to Noor Hindi at

If you just want to chat, we’re on Twitter at @akrondevilstrip, Facebook at, and Instagram at @thedevilstrip.
