PMP Writers Guidelines.


Before you start, please make sure your story follows our general publishing guidelines:


We publish anything that we stand for: We are a British pro-EU weekly online magazine. We also believe in social equality, equal opportunity, the promotion of individual abilities and talents, social responsibility, universal healthcare, workers rights, entrepreneurship, fair market competition, access to education and culture for all, consumer rights, the prohibition of child labour, the fight against racism and antisemitism, and in the fight against global warming.

We:

  • Open our columns to journalists, writers, bloggers, politicians, business leaders, economists, lawyers, thinkers and anyone who wants to discuss political decisions, social issues, innovative ideas, original projects and complex schemes.
  • Open our columns to anyone who wants to tell their story, share their experience, explain their views, describe their pain, show their enthusiasm, demonstrate their joy, talk about their life.
  • Open our columns to all writers with progressive opinions, whether they are Left-wing or Right-wing, as long as they support democracy, human rights, diversity and selflessness.
  • Fight fake news published by right-wing outlets and tabloids and social media bots by publishing real, honest and positive news and opinions.
  • Fight politicians' alternative facts that threaten the democratic debate by fact-checking their speeches and comments to maintain transparency, honesty and democracy in politics.
  • Go to the source of the reflections that influence politics and geopolitics in the changing world of today.
  • Feed our readers with the most trustworthy, accurate and fact-checked information.

ROYALTIES SYSTEM


  • We have retired the RATING feature on stories.

  • All PREMIUM writers will now be rewarded on a CPM (cost-per-thousand) basis instead. The more CPM (or reads) your story receives, the more royalties you will get. The more you promote your story through social media, friends, colleagues and family, the more CPM you will accumulate.

  • We will also award you 100 CPM per free-read story published on our magazine and 500 CPM per paywall story published on our magazine.

  • When you accumulate 35,000 CPM (reads) in your royalties account, you will receive your cash via PayPal payment. (threshold: 35,000 CPM = $35)

  • Stats will be available on a monthly basis and show how many CPM (reads) were accumulated so far on the writers' accounts. Here is the link (under construction) to access the CPM stats: http://vip.politicsmeanspolitics.com/premium-stats-cpm/

  • We are also launching a new feature to help our writers and their work. We called it 'COFFEE OR SNACK?' This will allow your readers to make a one-off micropayment of either $5 or $10 that will go straight to your royalties account and be added to the CPM royalties (we will not take any money of it).

  • Combining CPM and 'COFFEE OR SNACK?' should enable our writers to accumulate the 35,000 CPM threshold quicker and so... cash out quicker! (Note: The COFFEE OR SNACK feature will be released in the next few days.)

Any question, do not hesitate to ask us (contact@politiks.live). We're here to help!
