Journalism is an exciting vocation – and it comes with responsibilities to your community and your colleagues.

The NoFibs citizen journalist (CJ) project welcomes everyone who is willing to:

a) Support our philosophy

b) Abide by the MEAA code of ethics.

c) Take responsibility for carrying their ideas from writing them down as news articles, then uploading them, sub-editing and publishing them.

We often focus on reporting ongoing coverage (e.g. elections), however, we are also open to single issue pieces about anything of concern or interest to you.

All reporting for NoFibs is voluntary.

What you need

NoFibs is an online publication. Our CJs need access to at least a phone-cam and computer.

A Twitter account, as Twitter is a key promotional and communications tool for NoFibs.

Basic skills on WordPress online publishing.

The process

If you are interested in becoming a No Fibs CJ, or discussing the possibility, fill out our contact form.

NoFibs will get in touch with you.

We’ll have a chat to you about your CJ interests and about NoFibs’ philosophy.

We’ll ask you to agree to NoFibs’ terms of engagement (see below) and to disclose any political affiliations – if you are a member of a political party, or have been, you can still write for us, but you’ll need to disclose this in your profile.
