US based online mag looking for contributions from Transitioners
By Ben Brangwyn 27th August 2010
New online magazine focussing on ‘Relocalisation’ to be launched in the US
We love to see new communications and voices telling the transition story, and there’s a new one soon to be launched over in the US.
Transition Voice is an emerging online magazine devoted to peak oil, Transition culture, and climate change that is looking for content contributors.
The Transition Voice format is journalism-based, with a clear editorial positioning and limited monthly content reviewed by the editors prior to publication online. Transition Voice takes as its model print magazines such as Yes, Grist, and Good. While those magazines are broadly dedicated to the environmental movement, and Green issues in general, Transition Voice is primarily focused on peak oil and the transition into a new economy based in relocalisation.
Transition Voice seeks volunteer content contributors in areas of assignment writing; journalistic video and audio; comics; movie, website and book reviews; along with select opinion pieces. The content areas include Energy, Ecology, Economy, Transition, Arts, Spirit, and Politics, with sub-content areas under each of those navigational fields. Transition Voice hopes to one day pay contributors but at this time can only work with volunteers. The publisher and editor are also volunteer at this time. Contributors need not already have journalism experience–Transition Voice can train volunteer contributors.
