POWERLINES—Call for submissions
Scalawag and Southerly are seeking stories about climate change and infrastructure in the American South. We want investigative stories, reported essays, and features about the challenges Southern communities face when it comes to infrastructure—including but not limited to drinking water, energy infrastructure and transmission, or bridges, roads, and landfills—and the socioeconomic and political issues that surround them. Above all, we want journalism that interrogates the power dynamics involved in infrastructure projects and systems, and tie in with timely national and regional policies and issues like the Green New Deal.

We pay $1,000 for 1,800 to 2,000 words. Please fill out this Google form with your story idea and contact information by Monday, August 5. We look forward to hearing from you!
