Call for Pitches

Not currently accepting pitches. Check back for an update soon.

How to pitch

Email pitches to editor@westernconfluence.org. If you are a journalist or writer, please describe the angle your story might take and the reporting and storytelling approaches you plan to employ. We also welcome story concepts from scientists, researchers, managers, policy makers, and other engaged citizens including tips, names of contacts, links to scholarly papers, or other leads that we can develop into a story and assign to a reporter. Pitches should be no longer than 500 words and should clarify why the story will matter to Western Confluence readers.

Western Confluence editors and advisors will discuss and answer all pitches. For those we’d like to pursue, an editor will work with the writer to hone the approach to the story. All Western Confluence articles go through several rounds of editing to bring them in line with our style. Writers should expect an extensive revision process.
