Two days after the most recent presidential election, The Washington Post called on journalists to “be better– stronger, more courageous, stiffer-spinned– than they’ve ever been.”
Here at Everyday Feminism, we’re shifting gears and making moves that reflect what the world is calling upon us to do. We’re ramping up our online magazine with cultural and educational reporting that will move people to act and resist.
So we’re looking to hire 10 virtual reporting fellows who will write weekly educational articles that will seed, amplify, and accelerate cultural tipping points around key social issues our society is wrestling with. These reporters will join EF’s media team to take our coverage and analysis to the next level.
We are now accepting applications for the fellowships that run from July to December, 2017.
Deadline to apply is Tuesday, June 13th at 11:59PM, PST.
What We’re Looking For:
Ideal candidates should be ambitious writers with a knack for making complex issues easy to understand and accessible for everyone. We are looking for diverse voices that have a deep commitment to anti-oppression, a strong drive to make an impact on cultural conversations and even more importantly, a distinct personal voice and writing style.
Applicants must be pursuing journalism as a career and have experience working in a deadline-oriented environment. You should be comfortable speaking to and cold calling all different types of people, have a strong understanding of appropriate language and tone for sensitive subjects and an ability to integrate trending topics with journalistic and citizen sources.
As a reporter, you will work closely with EF editors to produce listicles, features, original reporting, essays and in-depth think pieces about some of the most pressing issues facing our world.
You will focus on topics related to one of our editorial tracks – identity, activism culture, policy, healing justice and privilege. You will be expected to pitch, report and write one story per week for six months. You will also be expected to attend a one-hour virtual orientation on July 5th and bi-monthly meetings.
- Pay per article is $175
- Free access to all of Everyday Feminism’s paid online programming
How to Apply:
Applications must include ALL of the following:
- A resume
- A single-spaced one-page essay explaining:
- Why do you want to work for us?
- Which editorial track do you want to report on – identity, activism culture, policy, healing justice or privilege?
- What do you think you could bring to our team based on the track you are choosing?
- What does intersectional feminism mean to you and how do you bring it into your work?
- Three work samples, provided via links or in PDF
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and so early application is encouraged. The application process will be closed by Tuesday, June 13 at 11:59PM, PST. Selections will be announced by June 21st.
E-mail applications with the subject, “EF Fellowship,” and PDF attachments to Michelle Zenarosa at [email protected].
