Pitching Your Article

Thank you for getting in touch with Resurgence & Ecologist. Here are a few things to remember when pitching your article.

We are a very small team and all work part time. To help us, please keep your pitch short and succinct so that we can make a decision about your suggestion with as few clicks as possible.

The magazine is bi-monthly and is in the readers' hands for two and a half months, which means that we have to be careful about topicality. We are unlikely to run an article on a news event that happened several months previously, for example.

We are keen to hear from people who understand the values of the magazine and want to contribute to our message. To help us, please think about which section of the magazine would best suit your article and read through our article archive to see whether/how we have covered the topic before.

Arts

Seeding Change: Five artists are responding to global efforts to save plants from extinction. An exhibition of their work is being held at the So-and-so Gallery on 25 December 2021. The piece would look at the role of art in communicating the urgency of the climate crisis and how art connects people with Nature, and would include interviews with the curator and some of the artists.
