The Fiscal Times: ‘We are always looking for new writers’

The Fiscal Times launched in March 2010 and quickly established itself among the ranks of pubs that cover politics, policy, economics and business. With a global readership similar to that of The Economist, Financial Times and Businessweek, landing a byline at the site means your words will reach everyone from Washington policymakers and corporate execs to college students and retirees.

TFT was named “Best New Site of 2011″ by minOnline, and its contributors include former staffers from The Washington Post, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. Freelancers, however, should not be daunted: “We’re always looking for new writers,” said senior editor Blaire Briody. Editors are on the lookout for stories that add value: “We are very interested in profiles of controversial political figures and business leaders, as well as counterintuitive pieces and data-driven analyses of government reports,” said Briody.
