Reminder: The Nova Scotia Advocate is always looking for writers

KJIPUKTUK (Halifax) – Just a reminder that the Nova Scotia Advocate is always looking for pitches. 

Our mandate is to tell the stories other media tend to overlook, and amplify the voices of the people you don’t often hear from. 

Poverty, ableism, racism, social justice, labour, the environment, the arts, those are the sorts of topics we cover, and Nova Scotia is our geographic focus.  

We’re political but not partisan, and our stories take sides. 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 folks who send us one-time donations, we can pay you for your efforts. 

Our budget for journalism is between $1000 and $1500 each month. I am told that what we pay our journalists is considered competitive. 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 always interesting, 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 couple of lines with what you want to write about, and we’ll get back to you. My email is rdevet@gmail.com.

A big thank you to our generous sponsors who allow us to continue to serve our community with news that’s not found 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.
