About Queen City Nerve
We are an alternative media company delivered through the print and digital mediums. Queen City Nerve provides a voice for news, culture, arts and music in the Charlotte, N.C. area. We provide local content on a daily basis on our website and bi-weekly in print at over 500 locations throughout Uptown Charlotte and the surrounding neighborhoods.
Born from the former staff of Creative Loafing Charlotte, which was abruptly shut down on Halloween 2018, Queen City Nerve exists to support our communities through investigative and enterprise news reporting on the topics that impact members of our community.
Queen City Nerve welcomes pitches from freelance journalists. To pitch us, please read our guidelines.
If you would like to get in touch regarding wrongdoing or a sensitive issue that deserves more attention, we are open to talking “on background” for stories, which means that we would never use your name in a story or tell anyone that we spoke. Please call or email us to talk more.
