Pitch to: Marc Cameron; Cassam Looch, arts editor; Siradeth Seng (The Issue editor).
Type of article: Features, reviews, interviews, comment pieces.
How to pitch: By email to email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com.
Post-pitch: If it catches our attention, then we’ll respond immediately.
What will impress: Someone who understands what the mag is about: it has its own political stance. We’re not from the same stable as Bono and Geldof. There’s a form of being political where everyone is jumping on the same bandwagon: poverty is wrong, Africa is poor, the world is overheating. Seven isn’t about stating the obvious, we speak up for oppressed communities in every continent.
Rate: Still in our early days, all contributions have been voluntary so far. Once funding is in place I want to pay a minimum £75 per article.
