Contract, Freelance

Are you an excellent writer & interviewer, preferably with experience as a reporter or journalist?

Do you love talking with regular people and finding the details that make their stories pop off the page?

Do you have a passion for love stories, weddings, and engagements?

Are you the kind of person who reads the Weddings & Celebrations sections in the New York Times or your local news each week?

If so, then do we have the job for you. Our clients are engaged couples who need the help of writers like you to tell their engagement stories—for their wedding websites, for newspaper announcements, or just to have an enduring, compelling narrative record of one of the most important things in their lives.

Sound interesting? To apply, please send an email to apply@zipwrite.com or email via Mediabistro, with the subject "wedding writer." You MUST include all of the following to be considered, regardless of which application process you choose.

Be sure to include:

  • Your LinkedIn profile or resume
  • A cover letter/summary
  • Examples of three true-life engagement/wedding stories you find especially interesting or compelling. Please provide links if applicable (for example to newspaper wedding announcements) and explain why you find them so interesting.
  • Answers to 2 questions:
    • What do you think makes a love/engagement story compelling so that other people would want to read it, and
    • Why are you passionate about engagements, weddings and love stories?
