The Marin Post is the premier publishing platform in Marin County and the San Francisco Bay Area for anyone who has a passion to write about local news and issues of community concern.
The Marin Post is a project of Community Venture Partners, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and is dependent upon grants, donations and other forms of public support. Our mission is to empower writers and provide an online platform for discussion of issues of shared community concern.
The Marin Post is a user-generated venue for citizen journalists to
create substantive, factual, well-written, long-form content, post notices, or link news article about issues of
general community concern in Marin, the SF Bay Area, and California. As such, the Marin Post has no staff writers and does not create content as a publication--other than linking content on other websites--nor do we take editorial positions on issues.
The Marin Post is not a traditional newspaper or Facebook
or Nextdoor or a place to post personal updates, personal ads. "how
to" information or marketing information to a business or other subjects that are better
served by social media, classified ads, and mainstream news
Our scope also does not include
national or international politics, which is well covered by
traditional media and social media unless the subject is something that has direct impact on California residents.
