Become a Pirate Times Contributor

The Pirate Times is looking for new contributors.

In our short existence the Pirate Times has had a large turnover in staff. This is mainly due to the fact that a lot of our writers, editors and use the experience they gain here to move on and take up important positions in their local and national Pirate Parties. This means we are always looking for new talent in 2014.


We need:

Authors: For articles on news events and topics that are of interest to the global Pirate Movement. You don’t need to be prolific or have perfect English. We will help with proof-reading to keep quality of articles high.

Proofreaders: We prefer native English speakers or multilingual speakers who have a high degree of proficiency in English

Translators: To translate articles into their native languages. Primarily Spanish and French speakers in the beginning.

Interviewers: To approach prominent and interesting people in the worldwide Pirate movement. This can be done by text, audio or video – the latter two methods could be combined with a podcast version of the Pirate Times. See below.

Podcasters: We want to build up a team of people who would be interested in creating a podcast version of the Pirate Times.

Designers: We need people who can regularly give the Pirate Times a fresh image.

Researchers: People who like to dig up facts that our writers can use to write an article from.

If you are interested in any of the above positions or have an idea in how you can help in another way then join the team by subscribing to the mailing list. http://lists.pp-international.net/listinfo/ppnews Introduce yourself and we will provide you with help and access to the tools we use.

We are looking forward to meet you.

About Andrew Reitemeyer

I joined the Pirate Party of Lower Saxony in Germany in April 2012, once I found out that non citizens were welcome to join and become active members of the Party. I joined the Pirate Times soon after it was started as a proof reader and am now an editor and author. Since then I have returned to my native New Zealand and joined the Pirate Party of New Zealand. Politically I come from the libertarian left and have, up to now, not regarded any political party as having a solution for the democratic deficit that envelops the world. With the advent of the Pirate Party, which truly embraces grass roots democracy, I have found a political home. The Pirate Times is a way I can contribute to furthering the Pirate Movement around the world. Skype: frithogar
