If you are a freelance writer with interesting stories to tell, the Record wants to work with you. Email us at [email protected] with your CV and we will work with you on developing a story and discussing whether the work is best suited as an explainer, a longread, a feature, or something longer. We pay at competitive rates so do not hesitate to contact us if you have an idea brewing!
Why do we want this?
We understand freelancers’ struggle and as we enter this new membership phase, we want to develop long-term relationships with journalists who have ideas and the drive to execute them. Right from its inception, freelance journalists have helped the Record identify and bring our best stories forward. We value our contributors, and want to ensure that our relationship with our writers is not transactional but one built on the basis of mutual growth. Rather than one-off submissions and commissions, we want to explore ways where we could build on your work and create something bigger. A note on freelancers ethics The Record strives to be as transparent with our readers as possible. In your email pitch to us please specify if the story stems out of a different project (work with an I/NGO, marketing campaign, other institutional affiliation), and other concerns regarding conflicts of interest.
Interested? Write to us at [email protected].
