Join our community: Become a Detour Detroit member


  • Make a real difference: Support Detour’s original Detroit journalism and neighborhood ambassadors program… AND fund Outlier Media’s cutting-edge journalism, including original stories just for Detour Detroit. We’re sharing 20% of our membership revenue with Outlier Media. Buy one Detour Detroit membership, support two worthy local journalism startups! That’s a win-win.
  • 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.

Do you think funding innovation in local news is worth the price of one  extra cup of coffee this month?

Click here to sign up for our $3 per month plan ($36 per year)

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!)?
