Freelance Journalists: Open Call For Submissions In July

Shadowproof is seeking pitches from journalists or writers for publication in July.

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 and please begin the subject line with “PITCH:”

This month, Shadowproof would like to publish stories on the following subjects:

  • Migrant human rights organizing (i.e., ICE protest encampments, family reunification / anti-detention / anti-deportation actions, etc.)
  • Problems with access to clean drinking water, especially during excessive heat advisories throughout U.S.
  • U.S. role in recent social unrest in Nicaragua and other Central American countries
  • Community organizing and local reforms/practices in response to opioid addiction and other forms of substance abuse
  • Veterans health care and the push for privatization

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.
