It’s been a year since our most recent presidential election when The Washington Post, among other outlets, 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, and adding an online school for social justice to give you a more hands-on approach to healing, growing, and transforming your life.
So we’re looking to hire 8 virtual reporters who will write monthly educational articles that will provoke deep reflection and analysis around key social issues our society is wrestling with. These reporters will join EF’s media team to continue to take our coverage and analysis to the next level.
We are now accepting applications for the contributing reporter positions that will run from February to August, 2018.
Deadline to apply is Monday, January 15 at 11:59PM, PST.
What We’re Looking For:
Ideal candidates should be ambitious and experienced 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, essays and in-depth think pieces — all with elements of original reporting — about some of the most pressing issues facing our world.
You will be able to focus on any topic related to one of our editorial focuses, which include but are not limited to identity, policy, healing justice, relationships and privilege. You will be expected to pitch, report, and write one story per month for 7 months. You will also be expected to attend a 2-hour virtual orientation on Feb. 13 and monthly editorial meetings.
