Campus Progress is hiring staff writers for September-December, and applications are due next Tuesday, July 20. Writers can be based anywhere (one of our writers is currently in China), they don’t have to be current college students, and best of all, they’ll get some great clips to take with them after their time is up! Apply, or share this with young writers you know:
Staff writers at Campus Progress:
Produce at least two reported 800-1,200 word stories per month
Write at least two 400-600 word blog posts per week
Pitch several stories and blog posts per week
Participate in a weekly check-in with a Campus Progress editor
Staff writers are encouraged to establish a beat on a key issue such as environment, health care, college affordability, LGBT issues, immigration, or culture. Previous writing or reporting experience for a campus or other publication is beneficial but not required. Staff writers are paid a stipend per story and blog post they produce. Staff writers can be based anywhere; Campus Progress does not provide office space. This is a part-time contract opportunity, not a full-time permanent staff job.
Campus Progress hires staff writers three times per year. Application deadlines for the fall (September-December) are due July 20, 2010.
To apply, please send a resume, cover letter, and three pitches for Campus Progress reported stories to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Staff Writer” in the subject line.
