How to pitch to New Internationalist

Pitch to: It all depends on what you are writing, but for general enquiries contact jol@newint.org

Type of article: The main sections open to freelancers are the Making Waves Interview (chrisb@newint.org), Country Profile (chrisb@newint.org), 2 page essay slot (davidr@newint.org), the Special Feature (jol@newint.org), reviews for the Mixed Media section (vanessab@newint.org ) and shorter features tied to news for our Current section (jess@newint.org).

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.
