Pretty Progressive underpins our mission: to make sure all issues and causes around the world are heard through in-depth guides and informational articles addressing the information asymmetry that has stifled the way in which information is being passed on.
As such, Pretty Progressive aims to reflect and report on the efforts of those readers and members who are interested and associated in the multiple issues plaguing this world. This is achieved by having a range of articles in each issue, where possible, written by industry professionals, qualified individuals and institutions. We are looking for news, features, opinion pieces and biographies of prominent individuals. We are particularly interested in contributions that:
- Provide in-depth insights based on real life examples or experiences
- highlight inspirational role models from members of different communities
- profile important reader achievements
- recognise the contribution made by volunteering activities
- communicate the subject areas of interest to the readership (e.g. articles relating to progressive issues).
Length and Style
News stories or articles are to be around 150-250 words long. Extended news stories or news features, with added comment and perspective, are in the region of 300-500. Features can be anything from 500 to 800 words.
Biographies are around the 200-300 word mark and draw on an individual’s life and career, including achievements and any Institution activities with which the member is engaged. A high-resolution photograph with a concise caption should also be supplied where possible.
Longer articles should try to remain direct and to the point, introducing comment in the form of direct and paraphrased quotation to illustrate and substantiate points raised.
