We welcome ideas and pitches from writers, photographers and illustrators – particularly if your idea is about the north east, you’re from the north east or are based in the north east.
Each issue of The Northern Correspondent has a theme – usually broad enough to attract all kinds of perspectives and angles, whether architecture or arts, equality or education, food or fashion, pets or politics, sport or social affairs.
If you’d like to pitch us an idea, simply email a couple of paragraphs about the idea (and yourself, if we don’t know you yet) to firstname.lastname@example.org
A final word about the thorny issue of payment. At this stage, we do not make any money out of publishing The Northern Correspondent – in current sales of the magazine (£5 per copy) cover only the cost of our print bill. However, we do it because we believe passionately in the traditions of magazine-making and story-telling, and because we want to bring the very best in writing, photography, illustration and design to our corner of England.
So to date, The Northern Correspondent’s writers, photographers, illustrators, designers and editors are giving their time and skills for free, because they believe in this magazine and they care for their craft. However, as we grow, and more revenue is generated through sales and subscriptions, it’s our firm aspiration and intention that the contributors who make our magazine possible will share in any profits made.
