Latterly is seeking narrative journalism pitches. We're offering competitive rates.
We want character-driven stories about people with a lot at stake, either confronted with changes or pushing for them. We enjoy reading David Finkel and listening to This American Life. We especially want to hear from you if you're working for a small- or mid-sized newspaper and you've got a story with global appeal that's gone unnoticed. Give us an idea of who your subjects are and how the story would unfold.
Starting November, Latterly will begin publishing four original pieces of narrative journalism each month from all over the world. You won't find sensationalism. You won't find ads, either. Just really compelling stories.
Latterly is different from other digital magazines. We never refer to our stories and photographs as "content," and they are not our "product" -- terms that commoditize the life stories of our subjects. Journalism isn't our "passion project"; it is our raison d'�tre. And while other digital journalism startups depend on free labor, we are paying our journalists from Day One.
Most importantly, we don't care about clicks. We won't monitor our traffic. Because of our unique ad-free, community-based model, we only care about two things: the stories, and our community of journalists and readers.
Our model is simple. Subscribers pay just $3 per month or $8 every three months. In return, they'll receive complete access to the stories they've funded. Traditional media, which depend heavily on advertising, are withering under their failing revenue models. And most digital publications aren't paying their journalists fairly. Unless something changes soon, journalists will stop telling important stories.
This is Latterly's mission -- to keep this work alive.
During the first several months, Latterly is investing 100 percent of its revenue back into the journalism. We are not a nonprofit, but for-profit doesn't seem to fit, either. We don't have investors; we have subscribers and donors. Periodically, as other publications have done (https://decorrespondent.nl/1721/Zo-investeerden-we-jouw-60-euro-ledengeld-tot-nu-toe/48520153-90a6e4a2), we will publish our finances so that anyone can see where each dollar goes. We're all in this together.
And now we're looking forward to your story ideas. Please send pitches to the e-mail address below.
