Want to write for the Hot Dish?

Categories: Readers Write


From taquerias and donut shops to black market camel milk and barrel-aged beers, we nerd out on all aspects of eating and imbibing in the Twin Cities and Greater Minnesota. If you feel the same, drop us a line. We're looking for writers who love to eat, drink, and cook; writers with personality and presence.

Hate communal table dining with the passion of a thousand fiery pizza ovens? Tell us about it. Have a favorite hole-in-the-wall hangout you'd like to celebrate? Rhapsodize on. Think toast is the greatest thing since sliced bread? Convince us. Writers with an eye for good photography are especially encouraged to respond.

We'll be honest: The pay isn't great. But if you love food and you love writing, the Hot Dish has a space for you to explore dining in the Twin Cities. Email us with your ideas, writing samples, and interests. We look forward to hearing from you.

Does this still pay $20-30 a post for a full-length blog post that includes images, image resizing, filling out a ton of forms for SEO, paying for a meal with only partial reimbursement and getting posts killed with no kill fee?

@justme We do pay $20 to $30 a post, but there is also flexible reimbursement available for meals and gas. We rarely (if ever) kill a post but can certainly discuss kill fees with individual writers. Last, there are also absolutely no forms (and certainly not "a ton") to fill out for SEO purposes. Happy to clear things up and answer any questions, though! 


Great! Then I have another question. Why do you pay such shitty rates?
