Culture Writer Wanted!

Open Cul­ture is look­ing for a free­lance writer to cov­er all things cul­tur­al and help bring more intel­li­gent media to our glob­al audi­ence. Here is an overview of what we have in mind.

  • The writer will con­tribute 3–5 posts per week on a very reli­able sched­ule and will receive com­pen­sa­tion for each post. Days will be mutu­al­ly agreed upon in advance.
  • The posts should be writ­ten in a clear, con­cise and engag­ing way. And the copy must be clean, and the facts, checked.
  • The can­di­date should have a lot of cul­tur­al depth/range, strong writ­ing skills, ide­al­ly a track record writ­ing online, and a good under­stand­ing of what our mis­sion is all about. Hope­ful­ly you’re already a fan of the site.
  • Pick­ing top­ics that mesh with our site is real­ly impor­tant. Please read the tips on this page.

In terms of next steps, it would be great if you could please sub­mit the fol­low­ing (and put “Cul­ture Writer” in the head­er) by Fri­day May 18th:

1) A short para­graph about your back­ground and inter­ests and how they align with Open Cul­ture’s mis­sion.

2) A writ­ing sam­ple and prefer­ably links to sam­ple pieces online.

3) A list of three sam­ple ideas/topics that you would cov­er in your posts, with a brief descrip­tion explain­ing why. Before you get start­ed you might want to refer to the tips on this page.

This will help us get ori­ent­ed, and we will fol­low up with a phone call if things feel on tar­get.

Thanks for your inter­est, and please let me know if you have any ques­tions.
