Land Conflict Watch is looking for story pitches

Land Conflict Watch  which collects data about ongoing land conflicts in India and tells stories about land. We work with journalists to shape deeply reported stories about how land and its intersection with politics, economy, environment, gender, caste, public spaces, education, health and art affects Indian society. We care about the stories we tell so it’s never a rushed job here. We collaborate with media outlets such as IndiaSpend, HuffPost, Caravan and the Wire to publish those stories. Some of our stories have been used to raise questions in parliament. Here is a link to our stories page:

So, if you are a reporter/writer who is interested land, please send us fully-formed pitches at [email protected]. Pitch us big ideas, chilling investigations, policy loopholes, moving narratives and anything in between. We are eager to work with women, LGBTQ, Dalit, Adivasi, and muslim journalists who are less represented in traditional media outlets. 

We are short-staffed so sometimes its not possible for us to reply to every pitch and so in case you don’t hear from us within ten days from the date of pitch submission, please feel free to take your pitch elsewhere. We pay Rs 10 a word, and travel expenses separately.   

If you have any questions about the pitching or story development process, please feel free to email them at [email protected] 

Looking forward to the pitches, and please spread the word with writers you think might be interested in this. 

Thank you much. 2020 will be better!
