Nor welcomes pitches for contributions from anyone in the community. You don't need to be a professional writer – we're happy to work with the right people to tell the right stories.

As a not-for-profit co-operative, our budgets for content are limited, but we do pay according to our current revenue, and we'll clearly agree a fee with you upfront. For most current contributions, our flat rate is $200 CAD.

For more on what we're looking for, and how it all works, please read the following guide.


Once you've read that, you can email us at with the subject line "Pitch for Nor Content". We'll get back to you as soon as we can, either way.
