We publish content across our platform that focuses on creative talent, cross-pollination, and ingenuity. While we’re always interested in these subjects, we’re not restricted to them.

GRØSS is based in Los Angeles and has a global community, so remember that a local story will need to have a farther-reaching angle or takeaway be published.

Below are guidelines for pitching online stories to us; articles for print are commissioned separately.

Step 1: Read the guide before submitting to make sure your content is a good fit because wasting time sucks.
