Ricochet practices public interest journalism. We demand rigour, accuracy, originality, strong writing and above all honesty. We have no higher duty than to our readers, and no corporate owners whose agenda must be served. All we ask is that you follow the story wherever it leads.
We accept freelance pitches for short- and long-form journalism, with special support available for worthy investigative projects. We pay rates competitive with most mainstream outlets in Canada.
Pitches must not exceed 200 words. Please include a brief synopsis of your investigative plan, three samples of previously published work and the projected length and delivery date of your article. We have a dedicated fund for reporting on Indigenous issues, so please indicate if you would like to be considered for funding through our Indigenous Reporting Fund.
We also accept unsolicited op-ed submissions. At this time we do not pay for opinion writing.
Inquiries should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
