Pitch us

We are always looking for freelance pitches.

Our budget currently allows us to pay between $200 to $600 per piece, depending on the length and story type. The majority of our donations go toward sustaining our ability to continue paying and to be able to do so consistently. Our editors and leadership team are currently all volunteers.

We are unable to respond to all pitches, but we will contact you as soon as possible if we want to move forward with your proposed piece. We monitor our pitches regularly.

If you have questions, please email [email protected] (or include them directly in your pitch if they are not time sensitive).


Please be very clear about why your pitch should have a home with us, rather than another media reporting/criticism site or news outlet.
You can also describe your past experiences, if you find that to be more pertinent.

We want to change journalism — but we need your help. Your support will ensure we can continue to provide a space for media criticism that other outlets won’t publish.
