Digboston.com is a product of DigBoston, Boston’s always witty and never dull guide to nightlife, opinion and events. Find it in black or orange boxes around the city and inside your favorite places to go to. Dig Publishing founded the alternative weekly in 1999. Dig Media Group Corporation acquired the publication in 2017.
DigBoston is Boston’s best and only alternative weekly publication. Always witty, never dull, the Dig, as it’s affectionately known, is truly the cure for what’s ailing the curious mind. How do we do that, you ask?
We cover local news, arts, music, sex, food, movies and shopping in a lively, funny, incisive and, most importantly, dead honest style. This has helped us develop a rapidly growing, and rabidly loyal, readership unparalleled in the Boston market. At a time when both marketers and other publications are struggling to figure out how to attract young people, the Dig does it week in and week out. The Dig is the only publication in Boston that has an absolute lock on the 21-34 year-old demographic everyone’s after.
Hot tip for us? Send it to [email protected] — and put TIP in the subject line.
Send all PR and marketing emails to [email protected]. Please read DigBoston before doing so to get an idea of what we cover and what we don’t cover. Off-mission releases will be considered spam.
No paid content accepted
Do not send any queries about paid content to DigBoston. We do not accept it. Also, we are not a f&^%ing blog. Anyone who attempts to ask us about running paid content and calls DigBoston a “blog” runs the risk of being mocked and derided by Dig staff—in addition to being considered spam.
Would you like to write for us? Pitch us at [email protected]. To submit, put PITCH in the subject line, plus one to two paragraphs about what you want to write, a one paragraph bio, and up to three links to clips.
Are you a photographer, illustrator or comic artist? Sorry, we’re not accepting submissions at this time. Please read this editorial to find out why and get a sense of what proposals we will consider from visual artists: https://digboston.com/how-to-do-photography-and-illustration-for-digboston/.
Interested in interning with us? We accept reporting interns on an ongoing basis. The time commitment for our internships is just a few hours a week, since they are currently unpaid. But we keep our interns working at what they do best, and never scut them out. Interns typically stay with us for two to three months. To apply, send an email with INTERNSHIP in the subject line plus two paragraphs about why you’d like to be a DigBoston intern, and links to your resume and up to three clips (no attachments) to [email protected]. Other types of internships are possible (photography, illustration, sales, etc.), just let us know what kind of internship you’d like to do. Only current and recent college students over age 18 are welcome to apply at this time. Applications from working adults with an interest in journalism will be considered on a case-by-case basis, but we don’t usually allow established media professionals to apply for internships.
