Eater Twin Cities is a local news site based in Minneapolis and St. Paul reporting on restaurants and bars, dining and dining trends, food pop-ups and food trucks, and the business of restaurants throughout the metro area. It is part of the Eater network and under the Vox Media umbrella, based out of New York City.

Eater Twin Cities accepts pitches on the following: local restaurant and dining news, dining guides, and food crawls, reported features on local restaurants, chefs, food trends, etc., and photography and illustrated stories featuring local restaurants and dining.

The site does not accept pitches regarding recipes, food holidays, grocery products, or conduct restaurant reviews. While Eater Twin Cities does occasionally accept local restaurant and dining-driven opinion pieces and personal narratives, those pitches must come with a strong writing voice, clear conclusions based in fact or with solid evidence, and/or personal experience.

All pitches should include a subject matter with a clear angle along with how the story will be structured, what the story hopes to conclude, and why the story is relevant to the dining scene in Minneapolis and St. Paul and to Eater Twin Cities readers. The site typically follows AP (Associated Press) style guidelines.

When submitting a pitch, please provide a short summary of who you are, your background, and why you are qualified to write the story as well as any previous relevant work via links or an online portfolio.

Send pitches and links to previous work or portfolio to Eater Twin Cities’ editor at joy@eater.com or to minneapolis@eater.com. Please put the word “Pitch” in the email subject line with a very brief description of the story.

Note: Eater Twin Cities receives several pitches a week and does try to respond to each. However, if we do not respond within a month, please resubmit.
