SAAG is looking for provocative, underreported stories, that do not get local and international media coverage. We are open to pitches for both individual and collaborative work only for reported prose and/or photo-journalism.

We seek stories that are cognizant of SAAG’s internationalist ethos, and its geographically diverse audience. We encourage unexpected collaborations, and use of eclectic sources of knowledge. SAAG is committed to rigorous standards for fact-checking and ethical reporting.

In no more than 5 brief paragraphs, please send us:

  • A note about you.

  • The basic premise of the story, and the tension you will explore.

  • Your main characters, and at least 2 primary sources.

  • Your timeline, and reporting plan. 

  • Which editor(s) you would like to work with.

  • Published clips, if any.

Payment: our fees will range from $300 to $600, depending on reporting timeline, length, travel, and other factors to defray the costs of rigorous reporting.
