Story ideas and pitches
To ensure your story ideas, press releases and communications reach the appropriate Xtra staff members, your contacts are:
- Robin Perelle, Vancouver area
- Matthew DiMera, Toronto area and other Canadian cities; travel stories
- Arshy Mann, staff news reporter
Xtra works with a base of paid freelance writers, photographers and videographers, in Canada and around the world. We are always looking for solid, skilled news reporters, talented feature writers, creative photographers and videographers.
As an ideal candidate, you thrive on being a news reporter. Thick-skinned, you’re not afraid to tackle sensitive issues or ask hard questions, even within a tight-knit community. Your commitment to fairness matches your meticulous attention to detail, spelling and accuracy. Your superior writing and self-editing skills enable you to quickly turn around error-free copy.
To discuss freelance opportunities:
- For Vancouver candidates: Send your resumé and your three best samples to Editorial Director Robin Perelle (firstname.lastname@example.org).
- For candidates outside of Vancouver: Send your resumé and your three best samples to Managing Editor Matthew DiMera (email@example.com).
We currently have thousands of bars, clubs, hotels, guesthouses, saunas, sex clubs, stores, media information and travel resources from around the world listed on our site.
