Submission Guidelines

Written by NB Media Co-op on June 3, 2009

The NB Media Co-op publishes investigative features, opinion pieces and letters to the editor, interviews, reviews of books, films and art, photo essays, videos, audio and event notices on a wide range of topics and themes including indigenous sovereignty, labour, LGBTQ, environment, health, women’s rights, students, rural social justice, anti-poverty, politics, the economy, and arts and culture.  

We welcome media contributions from published writers, first-time writers, front-line activists, and anyone with a story they want to tell. Be sure to include photographs, a headline that draws the attention of readers and a one-line bio about yourself.  

Send your articles or queries to info@nbmediacoop.org. One of our editors will collaboratively edit your article with you until all parties are happy with the final product.

When we have the funds, we pay an average of $150 for research-based investigative features that are usually 800 to 1,000 words.
