Freelance Journalists Wanted

‘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.
