De Correspondent is an advertising-free, 58,000-member-funded, journalism platform co-founded in 2013 by Rob Wijnberg, a former editor in chief of a Dutch daily newspaper. Providing a forum for new voices, De Correspondent members who have a particular expertise are encouraged to engage in dialogue with writers, and from their collaboration stories emerge. The idea is that cash alone won’t be enough keep public-service journalism alive in today’s landscape; there has to be a social contract between journalists and members. As an EF fellow, Wijnberg wants to bring his model for collaborative journalism to the U.S., with the goal of creating an English language edition.
