Pitch Us A Story

Iran journalism

Do you have a story that you feel we should cover?

If yes, we want to hear from you.

To pitch us a story, drop us a note at info [at] iranian [dot] com with “Story idea” in the subject line, or simply, fill out the form below.

For freelance writers wishing to be published on The Iranian, please submit your article here.

Guidelines to consider before sending your pitch:

  • The Idea: Every pitch should express the basic premise of the story. Describe the conflict or tension you’ll explore or the newsworthiness of the piece. Think of this as a specific statement about the story you wish to tell.
  • A Reporting Plan: Show you’ve done some homework on the reporting needed to tell the story. Describe interview possibilities (who the main characters are likely to be) and, for radio, sound possibilities (what the scenes are and where you plan to record).
  • A Time Peg: Give a reason to care and a sense of timeliness. You have to be able to answer the questions: So what? Why do this story now? Why should the audience care?
