Underscore Media Collaboration is looking for stories about Oregon’s Indian Country. Do you have a pitch you’d like to submit? Here’s how:
- Who we are: Underscore is a Portland-based nonprofit news organization dedicated to covering important issues and stories traditional newsrooms don’t pursue. We fund stories and place them with partner organizations, including ProPublica, The Oregonian, High Country News, and Indian Country Today. We have a particular interest in covering Oregon’s Native American communities. We’re currently looking for stories about COVID-19 in Indian Country.
- How to pitch: First, check out our website underscore.news and make sure we haven’t already written about your subject. We’re interested in original stories not covered by other media outlets. Send your pitch to firstname.lastname@example.org. Pitches with clearly identified characters, sources and news pegs are given preference. Stories with clear photo opportunities are also preferred. Feel free to suggest a headline and subhead.
