We want to showcase your talents. 

Each month, we hope to drop a thought-provoking poem into our magazine. We also hope to cover the Harrisburg region with photographs that showcase the different communities, cultures, nature, and events. While these wouldn’t be paid submissions, we would credit all poets and photographers, and notify you before publication. To submit a poem, please send to; to submit photos, please send to

We would also like to engage in the local music scene. To share your original music or suggest events, share news about your band or projects, please contact us at

Nominate a bartender

Bartenders are known as listeners in the community. They craft a great cocktail or pour a beer or glass of wine while they listen to their customers. We are interested in both their stories and their mixologist skills. Nominate a favorite bartender who mixes memorable drinks by submitting contact information and a brief paragraph explaining why this bartender is one of the best and submit to Harrisburg Magazine at

Nominate a neighborhood

Our new feature, “In My Neighborhood,” will feature neighborhoods in an effort to draw our communities closer together. We start with the north end of Harrisburg, which is where our office is located, and are going to New Cumberland for our June issue. What neighborhood should we feature next? To nominate a neighborhood, consider an established neighborhood (think Midtown or Shipoke or Allison Hill in Harrisburg) or an area of about a 7- to 10-block radius. This feature isn’t meant to be about an entire town, but a smaller segment of a town or city in our coverage area between Mechanicsburg and Hershey. To nominate your neighborhood, contact us at 717-233-0109, Ext. 1004 or at to ask for a template that you will need to complete. You can also find the template at
