**YOU MUST BE BASED IN THE LOS ANGELES AREA TO BE CONSIDERED FOR THIS POSITION.

Our agency is seeking a spunky, great writer and editor with the ability to create great ongoing content for a website aimed at helping Christian teen girls be their best selves.

You must "get" digital media and how imperative it is to publish clicky and compelling content continually (look! Alliteration in the job post)!

The site is personality driven – the celebrity attached to it is also writing a book. This is a work-from-home, freelance gig with flexible hours, smart team in place (editorial director, copy editor, photo editor, marketing operations manager, and community engagement lead) and a delightful client.

• Daily beat coverage - research and write daily newsworthy stories aimed at a Christian teen audience
• Seek out subjects, interviews, and write profiles and human interest stories (again...of interest to teens!)
• Participate in editorial planning
• Write directly to our WordPress CMS, photo edit, and publish articles to the site (as in...you don't need copy editing because you rock!)
• Work with associate editor on newsletter schedule
• Provide editorial direction on monthly engagement campaign
• Work with photo editor on blog post art and new visually-driven content pieces
• Brainstorm new content-driven engagement initiatives
• Run the publishing of all content and balance of the homepage
• Source and hire new writers and other creative talent as needed
• Be part of creative process and provide editorial guidance and feedback on new elements of the site and app to marketing director, social media manager, creative director
• Be available roughly once a month for editorial meeting with client and editorial team

You'll have a diverse set of skills in the creation, editing and production of original content and programming for our site and its network of communities. This is a part time job, 20 hours per week. Show your versatility and we could potentially put you on other projects with our agency (and we have a range of clients from shelter to healthcare to technology products)!

For now, though, we'd like to know in particular what makes you particularly qualified to serve as editor on a site for Christian teen girls.

Please include your resume and location in the text of your email. Please no phone calls, linkedin messages, etc.
