Freelancers Needed at This Bitchin’ Pub

Bitch provides its readers “a feminist response to pop culture,” and with such an eye-catching, jaw-dropping title, its content is nothing short of edgy.

“We rely on freelancers to pitch us,” editor-in-chief Kjerstin Johnson said. “If we generate an idea in house, we may send a query to a group of established freelancers,” but she emphasizes that the Bitch team is hungry for solid stories with new angles.

Without any staff writers to fill the gaps, freelancers generate almost all of the magazine’s content — including features, which are anything from analytical essays on the power of style to author Q&As, running 2,000-4,000 words.
