The Sunday Long Read is seeking pitches for two original longform stories

The Sunday Long Read is seeking pitches for two original longform stories, with an eye toward publication in the second half of 2021. We’re looking for ideas specifically from part-time, freelance, unemployed, or recently laid-off writers who have stories that they’d like to tell with us. Writers from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply, but special attention will be given to pitches from writers from communities that have been traditionally underrepresented in journalism. This opportunity is made possible through the generosity of SLR guest editor and longform journalist Jeff Maysh.

Please direct all pitches and any questions to editors@sundaylongread.com. We will accept pitches through May 31. Participating writers will retain the rights to their stories.
