Pitching guidance

We ​are always looking for writing that explores climate justice, art and science. We publish essays, reviews, graphic novels, interviews and more. We sometimes release a theme, which you can check on our social media or by following our newsletter.

Not sure what your pitch should include?​ We like it when...

Pitches briefly explain what the article or image would be about, highlighting key messages or conclusions for readers.

Pitches describe or point us to any of your previous work - writing, portfolio work or otherwise.

Pitches are for articles that will be critical and analytical. We aren't interested in 'how to's, descriptions of projects, recommendations or news stories. We want features, criticism and original thinking. We sometimes take personal essays and opinion, and we do take creative pieces and reviews.

Getting in touch

If you've already written a full piece, do send it to us. But you don't need to, a couple of paragraphs outlining your idea is more than enough.

Writers from any country or background are welcome, you do not have to be a journalist. We print in English, but are happy to work in translation or support writers for whom it is a second language, just let us know.

Send your pitch to editor@itsfreezinginla.com. Please include 'Pitching for 2023' in your email subject line.


​We typically pay £150 for articles that are around 1,000 words in length, or per illustration. However, this varies based on the project and topic.
