This site is all about community, and all about campus food. We, the co-founders, are four years out of college, and counting. But everyone contributing to Small Kitchen College is either still an undergrad, or remembers what it was like to eat during that time of life like it was yesterday, because it was.

As a contributing writer, you’ll get a chance to explore a subject that relates to the cooking and eating lives of yourself and those around you. You’ll have your voice heard on our site, which reaches thousands of readers each week. And you’ll get a chance to learn how to promote your writing online so it reaches the greatest possible audience—college students, their parents, and current readers.

We accept new contributing writers every term, and guest writers on a pitch-by-pitch basis.
