Website YWCA Scotland- The Young Women's Movement
October is Black History Month and to celebrate, we’re opening a call for paid blog pitches to platform the voices, experiences and talents of Black women in and/or from Scotland.
The theme set by Black History Month UK this year is Proud to Be, but we will happily consider pitches outside this theme too.
This is a paid opportunity – we are offering £50 for published pitches.
Please email your pitches (or any questions you have) to our Digital Officer Amy King – Amy@ywcascotland.org, including:
– Your name
– Your age
– Your location
– Your pitch and working title
We encourage you to get creative with your pitch! You can pitch reflective or personal essays, poetry, creative writing, informative blogs, or explore any other format you think fits the brief. Final blog posts should be maximum 800 words.
You can read blog posts commissioned for Black History Month in previous years on our website.
Closing date for pitches: Friday 17th September 2021, 5pm BST.
