The Friendly News is a collaboration between TELUS and Daily Hive. Together, we’re creating a space for important, feel-good community stories to be told, where Canadians can immerse themselves in uplifting news and articles featuring community leaders giving back during a time when we all need it most.
Let’s face it: 2020 has not been a big year for good news.
We want to change that.
In partnership with Telus, Daily Hive is looking to tell good news stories from across our fine country.
From coast to coast, we want to hear about the individuals, volunteers and companies who are making a positive change in their community, in a time where so many have been negatively affected by COVID-19. That also includes the journalism and media industry, and the hundreds of writers who have lost their jobs during the pandemic.
We are looking for freelance writers and journalists to help tell “The Friendly News” happening in Canada. We’re looking for feel-good original community stories that highlight and celebrate the remarkable things people are doing across the country during the pandemic.
If you are a Canadian freelance journalist, we encourage you to submit your proposal here to write a story about what you’re seeing in your community.
Journalists will be selected based on submission details and fit. Successful submissions will be contacted to write a 500-800 word article that will be published on a national level, and will be compensated. Submissions are being accepted until March 2021.
