• A Global Networking News and Media Marketplace

    Pitch stories to editors, find freelancers, fill assignments.

  • What's the story?


    Imagine a global news and media networking platform designed specifically to help journalists connect, find and post job offers, pitch story ideas, and cover breaking news from anywhere. The Pitch Place will offer journalists with breaking news and feature story ideas a one-stop shop for finding the editors interested in your content.


    Has this ever happened to you?


    Have you ever pitched a story idea to the wrong editor? Waited days with no feedback? Have you ever chased an editor, i.e., followed up on an email pitch with the hope that maybe they really did miss seeing that first email? Received a hard "no" only after it was too late to pitch a different editor?


    Have you worked really hard with an editor on a project you are both super satisfied to see go to print, only to not get paid, right away? Have you ever had to chase the editor's HR department asking, "When is my check going to arrive?"


    With The Pitch Place, journalists can pitch photographs, multimedia, broadcast/video, short and longform print, and radio stories with confidence, provide editors a deadline for responding and, when given an assignment, know that the payment is ensured through an escrow account. That means the payment will transfer within five days of the story being published.

     Need a freelancer to cover breaking news?

    Have you wanted to cover a breaking news event, but didn't have a freelancer or staff journalist already in place to cover it? Would you like to expand your coverage in a way that aligns with your budget? Are you seeking new story ideas?


    Commisioning editors can use The Pitch Place to find freelancers anywhere in the world news is happening and hire qualified journalists to cover the story ideas you want to see published.
