KJIPUKTUK (Halifax) – Just a reminder that the Nova Scotia Advocate is always looking for writers.
The CBC, the Chronicle Herald, and other media are busy reporting on the news of the day. The Nova Scotia Advocate’s job is to tell the stories these media tend to overlook, and to amplify the voices of the people you don’t often hear from.
Poverty, ableism, racism, all kinds of unfairnesses, labour, the environment, the arts, those are the sorts of topics we cover, and Nova Scotia is our geographic focus.
To give you an idea of what we’re all about, these are the kind of stories we have paid for in the past.
Thanks to our many generous readers who donate between $5 and $25 a month, as well as the occasional one-time donation, we can pay you for your efforts while keeping our website paywall-free.
Our budget for journalism is around $1000 each month. I am told that what we pay our journalists is considered better than most local media. Payment goes out on the same day we receive your invoice.
You don’t have to be an experienced writer. We will help you, and you’ll find doing journalism is a lot of fun, and really not as hard as it is cracked up to be.
Whatever you want to write about, do it safely.
If this isn’t for you, maybe you know somebody who might be interested. Let them know.
Send us a line with what you want to write about, and we’ll get back to you. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
A big thank you to the generous readers who allow us to continue to serve our community with news that’s hard to get elsewhere. We couldn’t pay our writers without them.
With a special thanks to our generous donors who make publication of the Nova Scotia Advocate possible.
