Pitch for Pay: HMC seeks pitches for next paid feature

The Halifax Media Co-op is seeking pitches for our next paid feature.

We are actively looking for pitches on underreported topics from a grassroots perspective that are relevant to Halifax and the surrounding community.

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).

The Halifax Media Co-op currently pays a flat rate of $100 for pitches that are accepted. Articles are either 800 or 1600 words. Writers do not necessarily need previous journalism experience but should be prepared for a rigorous editing process. 

Deadline for pitches is Monday January 10, 2011

Send your pitch to: hillary|a|mediacoop.ca

Check out the story ideas from our readers.

Stories from the perspective of marginalized communities in Halifax will be prioritized, including, but not limited to: people with disabilities, immigrants and refugees, Black communities, First Nations communities, LGBTQ people living in poverty.
