Website Pass The Mic
Last year, Pass the Mic was funded to work with women of colour experts who were keen to develop opinion making in Scoland and publish their views and expertise with seven media partners. This year, we are delighted to re-launch the writers programme with 15 spaces. Partners confirmed so far, include:
There are some changes to the programme this year to allow us the ability to engage with the maximum number of women.
The programme exists for an 8 month period, starting in February, with the aim to publish all articles by October 2022. Each writer will be linked with the media outlet most relevant to the way they wish to write and their area of expertise. We expect at least 1 article to be published (there may be a chance for more) and there will be a £100 payment (or vouchers if this is a requirement for your migration status or benefits support). All participants will be part of group development and discussion events and can receive one to one support as requested.
Interested? Please fill out the form here– deadline 4th February 2022. We expect a higher number of applications than spaces, and our decision on access to the programme is based on the information you provide and ensuring the involvement of a wide range of expertise. Thank you and we will be in touch soon!
