Hey everyone! We’ve got some announcements over here at The New Tropic.
First off, we’re stoked to announce we’re on the hunt for a storytelling producer. If you’re excited about helping Miamians connect with their city and believe digital storytelling, journalism, social media, and events are tools for doing that, then we want to hear from you. Find details and the application here.
Now, to clue you in on some changes happening over here –
Ariel Zirulnick, previously our executive editor, is now leading The New Tropic as its director. That means she’s managing the newsletter, searching for great partnerships in the community, deciding what issues in Miami we’ll dig in on, and generally just making sure The New Tropic stays the best thing out there for curious locals in Miami. Chances are if you hit reply to the newsletter, she’ll be the one to reply. Hit her up at [email protected] if you’ve got an idea, want to partner with The New Tropic, think we’re missing something, or have tips on a great new running route.
We also want to introduce you to Anika Anand, the co-founder of our sister publication in Seattle, The Evergrey. She’s starting an exciting new gig as the storytelling director for WhereBy.Us, the parent company that publishes us, The Evergrey, and soon, more awesome publications that help people explore, enjoy, and understand their cities. She’s heading up the storytelling team and working with Ariel to bring you stories, videos, and projects that connect you as much as possible to the 305. Got ideas or feedback on what we make? Reach her at [email protected].
All this means you’re going to see some changes in the way we do our storytelling. You’ll find more of the day-to-day in our newsletter, while the storytelling team chooses a rotating handful of topics to dive in on. This will give us more room to experiment with new storytelling methods, connect with you on social media, and spend more time out in the city with all of you. We’re looking for opportunities to dig in on Miami, explore it from more angles, and highlight the people, places, and ideas that are changing it for the better.
A big part of that will be listening to you on social and through our inbox. We want to know how we can better help you build the Miami we all want to live in. Where should we be? Who should we know? How can we help? You know you can email us any time at [email protected].
We’ll see you in your inbox!
