Freelance Journalists Wanted
New Statesman writer Tom Holland called us ‘bold and timely’. Muslim former radical Ghayasuddin Siddiqui praises our ‘objectivity’. Lapido Media is now seeking to build on its reputation for in-depth reportage in the new field of religious literacy in world affairs.
We are building a register of journalists who understand that religion and politics do mix.
‘A massive indifference to and ignorance of religion by secular journalists meant we didn’t see either 9/11 or 7/7 coming’, said Washington-based journalist Paul Marshall.
If that matters to you; and if you’ve got shorthand and a portfolio of relevant work, contact us about commissions now. NUJ rates apply.
If you’d like to get involved, and feel you have something to offer, we would be pleased to hear from you. There are lots of opportunities for graduates with a degree in law, media studies, international relations or sociology of religion. We are particularly interested in aspiring journalists.
