Join the Detour community

Make a real difference: Support Detour’s original Detroit journalism and neighborhood ambassadors program.

Meet people like you: At our members-only events: volunteer opportunities, happy hours and behind-the-scenes tours.

Join the team: Invitations to our editorial meetings, access to our editorial team and the opportunity to submit op-eds.

Quality conversations: A members-only Facebook group to talk about Detroit stuff without the comments from your crazy aunt’s tennis partner.

Be the solution: Fund a crazy new startup and help us build the future of local news.

We’re offering Detour Detroit memberships to our beta readers for only $3 every month. Is supporting local journalism worth the price of one extra cup of coffee a month?



Fine print: You’ll be charged $3 every month that you’re a member. You can cancel at anytime… no penalty, no problem. Sorry, we don’t do refunds. This is journalism, not a department store. Want to buy Detour as a gift for somebody cool? Purchase a group membership of Detour for your team? Or do you feel like giving us MORE than $3 per month (PS we love you!)? For these requests and more… email ashley at detourdetroiter dot com.
