Parts & People is a six-edition, automotive parts and service industry trade-only publication whose goal is to provide news, information, and best-practice business articles to mechanical- and collision-related automotive businesses with the express purpose of sharing and cultivating good, ethical, and profitable business practices.

We publish in-depth local, business-to-business coverage not found elsewhere, enhanced by regional and national news pertaining to issues, businesses, and people in the automotive parts and service industry. Based in Denver, we have been publishing for more than 25 years.

A contract writing position is available in our River Valley edition and is Central Illinois-based. Some road travel within state will be required at times. The contract writer lives in the Central Illinois area.

We are looking for a feature writer to write between one and two feature articles per month. A feature article for us is approximately 750 to 850 words plus two, sometimes three, photos. Article interviews are arranged by Parts & People, although recommendations are welcome once appropriate.

We publish monthly, around the third week of the month. We pay per column inch, including photos but excluding headline. We pay travel expenses outside the writer’s greater metro area. If any other expenses are possible, we agree upfront (hotel, meal, etc.). As previously stated, applicants must have credible experience in the automotive parts and service industry as well as business-to-business writing.


Interested candidates are asked to please forward between three to five writing samples, a cover letter, and resumé.

We look forward to hearing from you.
