Freelance Feature Writers

Terrific opportunity for professional journalists who like to dig into a subject and pull out the story behind the headlines. We are looking for competent freelance reporters who are equally as good developing stories through telephone interviews or on assignment and in-person. Your focus will be to tell the human story of faith-based volunteers who focus on the needs of vulnerable disaster survivors. (Frankly, if the story has been reported elsewhere, we're not likely to be interested.)

 

Your responsibilities will include gathering factual information, conducting interviews, writing articles for national distribution.  

 

Qualifications/Experience

The selected journalists will be experienced in writing breaking and general assignment news on deadline with a strong human interest tilt. A minimum of two years experience as a daily news reporter with the ability to work independently under short and multiple deadlines is required. Prior understanding of disaster response issues, previous on-the-scene exposure to disaster response activities, and familiarity with nonprofit and governmental  organizations are all highly desirable. Must possess BS or BA degree in English, humanities or journalism.

 

 

What You Can Expect 

Your first stories will be entirely based on telephone interviews (unless a disaster occurs nearby) while we get to know your skills. (Writing about disaster response has a bit of a learning curve as you get to know the major players and process.) Journalists who are able to produce tightly written articles on deadline, will be considered for travel assignments.
