Local Voice for NW Philly
Founded in 2014, The Local offers hyperlocal news with a “hypervocal” spin.
“East Falls Local” started as a page for photos & items of interest specific to our neighborhood of East Falls, Philadelphia. Soon after, we began sharing features on EastFallsLocal.com, and in a free publication we offered at first seasonally, and then monthly as our popularity grew.
In 2017, CultureWorks of Greater Philadelphia took us under their humanities wing as a non-profit project promoting free, independent press. Thanks to a generous grant from Citizens for the Arts in Pennsylvania in 2018, we became “The Local” and expanded to highlight contributors throughout NW Philadelphia -- reporters, community leaders, and developers, as well as fiction & humor writers, memoirists, reviewers, and more.
Re-booted as nwlocalpaper.com (thanks Todd!), we’re telling the stories you won’t find in anywhere else, from the “front lines” of developing neighborhoods struggling with real issues and celebrating unique triumphs every day.
SUBMISSIONS: Authors, artists, designers, photographers, and makers of all kinds -- email [email protected] for guidelines and a “Wish List” of content we’re currently seeking.
