Pitch an investigative story to NB Media Co-op for payment!

Written by NB Media Co-op on November 30, 2012

nbmcThe NB Media Co-op, Conservation Council and the CUPE Global Justice Committee are excited to announce the establishment of an Investigative Journalism Fund!

The Investigative Journalism Fund will enable the NB Media Co-op to pay $150 for investigative features this winter and spring.

Next deadline: Feb. 4th, 2013.

The NB Media Co-op strives to provide news and analysis that empowers its readers and encourages participation in movements for equality and justice.

We welcome pitches from published writers, first-time writers, front-line activists, and anyone with a story they want to investigate and tell.

Send us your pitch by January 4. If your pitch is accepted for payment, a first draft will be due two weeks later. The word limit for our investigative features is 800-1,000 words. One of our editors will collaboratively edit your article with you until all parties are happy with the final product.

To pitch an article, send us less than 200 words describing the topic you wish to cover, who you will interview, what sources you will consult, and a brief bio about yourself. Send your pitch to: info@nbmediacoop.org.

Please review our About Us Page and Submission Guidelines before sending your pitch.

The investigative features will be posted on the NB Media Co-op website and the monthly broadsheet publication, The Brief, which is distributed across the province.

The Investigative Journalism Fund is made possible by a grant from the Atlantic Council for International Co-operation.

The NB Media Co-op hopes that our very first paid investigative features will contribute to the growth of our co-op’s membership and thereby help us sustain the funding of much needed investigative journalism in the future. Our current membership pays for the printing, distribution and layout of The Brief. With more paying members, we are confident that we can fund investigative journalism in the future. Are you a member yet? Suggested annual memberships are $30. Monthly direct deposits are also an option. Sign up today here or by contacting info@nbmediacoop.org.
