KJIPUKTUK (Halifax) – The Nova Scotia Advocate is looking for pitches.Thanks to a substantial increase in donations we have money in the bank, and we want to spend it.
Stories about poverty, housing and gentrification, workers and bosses, City Hall, the environment, racism, homophobia and misogyny, refugees, people living with disabilities, prisons, the arts, we want it all. We like the stories other news media overlook, and we do prefer stories that focus on Nova Scotia or the Atlantic provinces.
How badly the story need to be told is more important than how many people will read it. If you write from lived experience, so much the better.
Send me a pitch (200 words tops) at firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t be shy, lack of experience is not a disqualifier at all, we will work with you.
We can pay up to $200 for a story, maybe even more, depending on the complexity of the topic and how experienced a writer you are. Payment goes out the the same day we receive your invoice.
A big thank you to our generous sponsors who allow us to continue to serve our community with news that’s hard to get elsewhere. We couldn’t run the Nova Scotia Advocate without them.
And yes, decisions are final…
If you can, please support the Nova Scotia Advocate so that it can continue to cover issues such as poverty, racism, exclusion, workers’ rights and the environment in Nova Scotia. A pay wall is not an option, since it would exclude many readers who don’t have any disposable income at all. We rely entirely on one-time donations and a tiny but mighty group of dedicated monthly sustainers.
