As the Covod-19 lockdown begins to have an impact, many publications will see a squeeze on resources: the impact on freelance writers will be significant, both in terms of income and in decreasing profile and connectedness. Writers need to keep writing.

Little Atoms has always believed in paying people for their work: and we have always believed in commissioning pieces that may not be on the news grid, but that are linked to the genuine passions of writers and readers.
