pitching guide

Please note all our external contributors write on a voluntary basis– as much as we would love to pay you and wholly believe you deserve it, we are a not-for-profit organisation. We offer editorial guidance and a platform for independent thinkers, writers and doers.


We commission socially-driven journalism: news features, investigations, policy analysis, op-eds and interviews. Send 2-3 paragraphs outlining your idea, your access to relevant sources and links to a couple of writing samples if you have them. This is NOT a condition, we love to platform first-time writers. Open the subject line “PITCH” and add “TS” if the piece is time-sensitive.

Bear in mind that we include follow-up actions with every article, and will expect you to bring some ideas.

We dedicate an arts corner to cultural critiques, art or book reviews and original poetry. We’re looking for socially relevant material that shines a light on issues or trends beyond the item in question. We also save a space for short films and documentaries on our homepage.

You can send complete works of creative writing, but please only send pitches for articles as we like to work with you towards the final piece. Include “PITCH” in the subject line either way.

Contact miels@peoplewhodothings.co.uk or hester@peoplewhodothings.co.uk


First-person stories, reflections and diaries are some of our most popular pieces, covering everything from mental health to veganism, sexuality to criminality—anything that shines a light on humanist issues and can be a guide for people in the same boat.

Send a couple of paragraphs detailing your proposal, written in a personal style that give us a sense of your voice. Include “PITCH” in the subject.
