Launched in 2010, What Weekly is a digital magazine that harnesses and organizes the power of many local creatives who have worked with us over the years to craft the content. These stories have been brought to life in collaboration with friends, family, clients, staff, readers, artists, writers, videographers and photographers. The whole journey is documented here.

What Weekly was initially founded to “Document the Baltimore Renaissance,” and to share amazing stories about Baltimore that were often overlooked by mainstream media. Since then, we have grown to seek out and share the most amazing things we can find other parts of the U.S. and the world.

What Weekly has published over 2,000 original stories, been read in over 200 countries, with over 20,000 monthly unique readers. The Guardian has said What Weekly is the “best blog for travelers… with their fingers on the pulse of all things hot and creative in Charm City.” New York Magazine said What Weekly was “rated the city’s best new magazine” and Baltimore Magazine honored us with numerous ‘Best Of’ awards.

Our most compelling stories take the form of Photo Essays, Artist Profiles, Innovator Profiles, Commentary, and stuff that will make you laugh. We also love music.

What Weekly has worked with hundreds of contributors over the years.
