Given our limited resources, we are unable to pay writers for their contributions, although that is our long-term aim. But we want to encourage new writing talent and are always open to receiving article proposals either for the magazine or the website.
A typical Red Pepper article offers background and context to political issues, a challenge to intellectual/political orthodoxy and what the mainstream media are saying, an important story that hasn’t been covered elsewhere, or it provokes debate on an important issue for the left.
Most articles published in Red Pepper are written specifically with the magazine in mind, and reflect our style and concerns. Be sure you are familiar with the magazine’s political approach before submitting anything for consideration. You are encouraged to submit a synopsis of 100-200 words outlining your article or idea – please do not send large manuscripts or raw articles.
The synopsis should include the following:
If we are interested in your proposal, we will contact you with suggestions on how to proceed and give you a deadline.
Please be aware that if we accept a piece, we cannot guarantee a particular issue in which it will be published or whether it will be in the magazine or on the website.
Red Pepper often does not have the resources to reply to each writer individually. If you do not hear from us please assume that the editors have decided not to pursue your proposal.
To submit a proposal email submissions[at]redpepper.org.uk or write to Red Pepper, 44-48 Shepherdess Walk, London N1 7JP
