Learn more about The Reporter’s Notebook and its purpose in this post.
Pitches can be submitted through this Google Form, and do not need to be about COVID-19. We encourage everyone to share ideas for original stories. If you do have a story idea related to the COVID-19 response, as best you can please focus your pitch on novel or local story angles that haven’t already been told.
The blog isn’t a place where you’ll find breaking news, lengthy features, or reviews of beers or products. Here’s what we’re looking for:
- Quality reporting
- Tight interviews
- Personal essays
- Well-informed commentary
- Poignant narratives about small, striking moments
Again, anyone can pitch in the following areas by completing this Google Form.
- Stories (300–500 words)
- Photo essays (3–5 pictures, 200–300 words)
- Video (60–90 seconds)
Contributors will be paid $50–$100 per post, depending on the content. Reporters are expected to fact-check, respond to edits, and follow AP Style.
