<p>Prism, a 501c3 nonprofit working in tandem with Daily Kos, is looking for pitches.?</p>


<p>We’re eager to read essays, articles, and op-eds featuring voices not currently centered in traditional media. We have two verticals on voting rights and criminal justice; while we seek stories that fit into those verticals, we also seek pitches more generally related to Prism’s focus on reflective democracy and spotlighting marginalized voices.</p>

<p>We are eager to read inspiring stories about movement leaders and activists; the intersection of climate justice, gender justice, and social justice; the unique impact current policies have on marginalized people; and other stories from perspectives not typically spotlighted in traditional media. Everything from powerful first-person essays to investigative pieces to analysis is welcome. We are also looking for multiple-story arcs—deep dives that hit and follow a story from multiple angles. No poetry or fiction, please. To get an idea of what kinds of stories we’re looking for, please read some published Prism pieces here: <a href="https: www.dailykos.com/blog/OurPrism" rel="no-follow">https: www.dailykos.com/blog/OurPrism</a>&nbsp;and get a feel for articles that move us by checking out what we share on Facebook:&nbsp;<a href="https: www.facebook.com/ourprisms/" rel="no-follow">https: www.facebook.com/ourprisms</a></p>

<p>To submit a pitch, please emai?l: pitchourprism.org&nbsp;and attach two writing samples. Pay is 40 cents per word. We also consider high-quality comics, graphic stories, or other illustrated works and pay a range of $150-$500.</p>



<p>Prism is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. We seek to identify, support, and promote the voices of marginalized leaders and journalists, centering their personal stories along with the issues facing their communities. We leverage Daily Kos’s multi-million reader reach to educate a growing progressive readership. Consistent with our mission, we believe the experiences of people of color, LGBTQ persons, and women should be centered in our work and we encourage people from these communities to apply to join us. We look forward to hearing from candidates why they are interested and how they would inhabit this role.</p>
