Halifax call for pitches!

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 Friday June 4.

Send your pitch to: hillary@mediacoop.ca

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.

The Halifax Media Co-op is particularly interested in pitches the following topics recommended by our readers (but all pitches will be considered):
- an investigation into Clearwater and the demise of the East Coast fishery
- Offshore oil drilling in the Maritimes
