Pitch

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

For your reference, we generally prefer articles to be between 600-800 words in length (although we are open to the prospect of longer pieces) and to be about anything nature-related. Most of our pieces focus on Australian nature stories, but international stories are also welcome.
Stories specific to Melbourne or Victoria are published on our Wild Melbourne page.
As you may be aware, we are an apolitical organisation, so any publications must also be as apolitical as possible.
We also like to publish stories with a strong narrative. For example, instead of writing a purely factual piece about an Australian animal or plant, we prefer an article to have more of a focus on a personal experience with this species, or some kind of engaging story relevant to this species. Contributions can be either non-fiction or fiction, and we also love to publish visual pieces such as artwork and photographic essays. 
 
Following submission of your piece, our publications team will be responsible for editing your work when appropriate. If any major changes need to be made, you will be contacted prior to publication.
 
If possible, the inclusion of the following with your article is also preferred:
 
A short author bio (1-2 sentences). We can also add an author photo if you are comfortable with this.
Approximately 3-4 images relevant to your story. These must be either your own or ones that we have permission to use. If you are unable to provide images, then we can happily source some ourselves.
-The inclusion of links to relevant sources when needed (primarily when referring to scientific research or quotes).
 
As you may be aware, we unfortunately do not offer payment for article contributions at the present time, as most of our staff currently work on a volunteer basis, including our writers. We understand if this means that you are unable to contribute.
