Our New York Project was extremely gratifying to put together and the end product was something that we were exceptionally proud to feature - thanks to everyone involved. But after New York, where can we go for our next assignment?
Not only the birthplace of the oldest football club in the world, but a sporting, political and cultural leviathan of a city.
The home of Wednesday and United, the location for snooker's most exhilarating clashes. The epicentre of a DIY musical explosion in the late 1970's and a steely, grinding corradiation of the Industrial Revolution, Sheffield has its share of characters and an abundance of tales to relay.
Sheffield is the theme for our second IBWM Assignment but the angle that you use for your article is entirely your call. The city offers a myriad of fantastic fables and we'd like to tap into what you know, football or not.
If you’ve something special on Jarvis Cocker, Marti Caine, Roy Hattersley, Brian Deane, Jessica Ennis, Peter Stringfellow, John Brown, Helen Sharman, Patrick McGoohan, David Hirst or anything/anyone else connected to Sheffield, we'd love to hear from you. As always, be creative, get noticed.
Articles should be a minimum of 1,500 words with no upper limit.
We don't require a pitch, or a CV, just send something over.
You don't need to be from Sheffield to submit an article.
You don't need to be a professional writer, anyone can submit.
Deadline for submissions is Thursday, 22nd October 2015.
We aim to publish in late October.
We can't guarantee to publish everything we receive, but we will read ALL submissions.
Articles can be mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can submit using our contact page.
