Seeking East Coast Content for the Dominion's Special Issue on Climate Justice!

Blog posts reflect the views of their authors.

The Halifax Media Co-op is seeking pitches for paid articles/infographics to be included in the Dominion's upcoming special issue on Climate Justice! 

To pitch an article, send us less than 200 words outlining a) the topic you will cover, b) who you will interview or what sources you will consult, and c) one line bio of yourself, and a link to your previous work (if applicable).

Send pitches to hillary|a|mediacoop.ca

The Halifax Media Co-op will be prioritizing pitches based on ideas recommended by readers.  The HMC collective has discussed these ideas and is particularly interested in a story on grassroots resistance to Colombian coal in the Maritimes and/or an infographic on Nova Scotia Power, detailing rate increases and the government and community responses. 

If you choose to pitch one (or both) of these ideas, please include what angle you would take on the story and why you are the right person for the job. 

The Dominion / Media Co-op will pay a flat rate of $100 for accepted stories. Articles are either 750 or 1500 words (one to two pages).Editors reserve the right to suggest changes and edit stories (with your participation, of course!). Pitches should capture the content, tone and style of the story you plan to submit; if the content submitted differs significantly from the pitch, editors reserve the right to withhold payment.

Pitch deadline:  Monday January 3rd

An editor should contact you by Wednesday January 5th, and if your pitch is accepted the first draft deadline is January 19th.
