Become an Observer!

The Heights Observer is looking for people, ages 1-100, to get involved in the paper. After all, the Heights Observer is all about citizen journalism and its power to tell local stories at a grassroots level. We are looking for volunteer writers, photographers, designers, and illustrators. It doesn't matter if you are a professional or amateur, our editorial staff will be glad to have you.

Want to be a reporter? The first place to go is the Member Center. This is where all the magic happens. From this page you can submit stories about anything Cleveland Heights- or University Heights-related that you desire. Just sign up and start sending us your stories. All will appear on the website and many will be chosen for the print edition.
