Shadowproof is seeking pitches from journalists or writers for publication in June.
Individuals are encouraged to send pitches with a 1-2 paragraph outline for their story. We also urge journalists to suggest how much they would like to be compensated and when a first draft would be ready.
Email your pitches to firstname.lastname@example.org and please begin the subject line with “PITCH:”
This month, Shadowproof would like to publish stories on the following subjects:
- Direct actions against pipelines and legal efforts to invoke “necessity defense” in court
- Community organizing and local reforms/practices in response to opioid addiction and other forms of substance abuse
- Campaigns to privatize the veterans health care system
- Impact of Supreme Court decision (Epic Systems Corp. v Lewis) allowing employers to prohibit workers’ class action lawsuits
What happens after we receive your pitch?
We’ll respond within a week after receiving your submission. If we accept your pitch, we will discuss how much you want to be paid for your proposed contribution, when you can turn in a first draft, and when we plan to publish.
Please refer to our “Freelance Submissions” page for more details on submitting pitches to Shadowproof.
