Media Works Handbook looking for freelance pitches

Have you got an idea for a story related to labour and the media? A new project is looking for pitches from members of CMG Freelance and CWA Canada.

The unions have partnered with CUP and the NCRA on a project called Media Works: Labour Rights and Reporting Handbook. The handbook is seeking stories that cast a critical eye on subjects such as freelance work, working for “exposure,” diversity in media, unpaid internships, and organizing media workers.

Pitches may be proposals for 1000-1250 word articles, videos, radio documentaries, photo-stories, or graphic journalism stories. Fees for accepted pitches will  be between $250 and $400 depending on the story’s length and complexity.

All contributors must be CWA Canada Associate Members or members of CMG Freelance. Click here to find out whether you’re eligible for a free CWA Canada Associate Membership. Information about CMG Freelance membership is available here.

The Media Works Handbook is also looking to hire an editor who will need to put in between 160 and 360 hours on the project between January 5th and February 27the, 2015. For more information about that position, check out this job listing on the CMG Freelance website.

The deadline for all submissions is December 7th at midnight ET.
