Pitch to: It all depends on what you are writing, but for general enquiries contact email@example.com
Type of article: The main sections open to freelancers are the Making Waves Interview (firstname.lastname@example.org), Country Profile (email@example.com), 2 page essay slot (firstname.lastname@example.org), the Special Feature (email@example.com), reviews for the Mixed Media section (firstname.lastname@example.org ) and shorter features tied to news for our Current section (email@example.com).
Topics: Each month we have a specific topic so we are limited in what we can take. The Special Feature is a four-page spread with a free brief, as long as it’s concerned with global justice issues. The format is flexible: it could be photographic; a closely grounded philosophical piece or a shorter series of three pieces.
How to pitch: Email us. Either a short synopsis or the finished article is fine. We will read through a complete article if it’s relevant.
What will impress: Something that will connect with the ethos of New Internationalist. It needs to be internationally aware.
What won’t impress: It can’t just be British. We have a global readership.
Rate: £220 for 1,000 words. Most of our availability is for longer pieces.
Images: Not essential, but yes they do help, especially if it’s a direct interview for our ‘Making Waves’ section.
