Red Pepper is a political project as much as a magazine, and there are a number of ways of getting involved:
Sell Red Pepper
We always need people to sell Red Pepper at events up and down the country – not just demonstrations and public meetings, but local festivals or cultural events. You can also help make sure your local bookshop or newsagent stocks it. If you’re part of a campaigning group, and would like to sell Red Pepper and keep a percentage of the cover price to help fund your group, just contact us to agree the terms. In all cases, email Kitty Webster: email@example.com.
Invite an editor to speak
Red Pepper editors are happy to speak at meetings if time permits (editing is voluntary and the editors all have paid jobs elsewhere). The editors have different areas of expertise, but between them can cover a wide range of politics, including issues of left strategy and organisation. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an editor speak at your meeting, including both the content and expected audience.
Volunteer for Red Pepper
There’s lots more we’d like to be able to do with Red Pepper, so we welcome offers of help from people with particular skills. For instance, do you have audio or video recording and editing skills that could help us move into multimedia? Could you help us fundraise? Are you a designer who could design t-shirts, images for our website, or illustrations for the magazine? Email Kitty Webster: email@example.com. Also feel free to get in touch if you are interested in helping us in the office.
Write for Red Pepper
In contrast to the mainstream media, Red Pepper’s content comes directly from an international network of writers based in the alternative movements for radical social and environmental change. Given our limited resources, we are unable to pay writers for their contributions, but we are always open to receiving article proposals either for the magazine or the website. Read more
