You do not need to be Pagan to apply, although it's good if you're not opposed to religious practices outside your own.

Report for the PNC!

PNC-News Wants YOU
Are you a Pagan with an interest in your community? Are you not Pagan, but enjoy news reporting or just asking lots of questions in general? Do you have an interest in how Paganism interacts with the rest of the world? Do you wish you had even more quality news sources on Pagan religions?

You can BE that change!
Pagan Newswire Collective is looking for volunteer reporters. If you donít have a bureau near you and you wish to start one, contact Managing Editor Cara Schulz at: schulzcaral@gmail.com .

On your own? Youíre not alone! Even if you do not have a local bureau, there is still a place for willing and active reporters in the PNC. If you would like to work as a national or international stringer, contact Executive Editor Diana Rajchel at: pnceditorial@gmail.com

What would you get out of this?
This is a great opportunity to start building clips, an all-important building tool for people with ambitions towards professional writing and reporting.

Also, you will learn about writing in Associated Press Style, develop hands-on experience in balancing between the Pagan community and the 4th estate (thatís journalism) and it gives you a great excuse to go talk to people you might have felt too shy to before.

What do you need to do?
For national reporters: 1-2 stories of national or international interest per month, with roughly 500 words per article. For local bureau reporters, the ideal number of articles filed is determined by the bureau.

You do NOT need to have a journalism or mass communications degree to join the collective, just be willing to learn.

Interesting! Does the Newswire accept international writers - say, UK-based writers focusing on Pagan stuff in Europe and the UK? Or is it more of an American thing?

We do accept international reporters! We have branches in Mexico and South America right now - a British bureau or European bureau or series of bureaus is a much-needed addition! Stringers from various locals would also be quite welcome.
