Freelance Food Writer
The Spruce is looking for several writers to contribute Food and Beverage content to our lifestyle website. Topics include developing recipes, recipe roundups, ingredients profiles, and articles explaining various cooking and/or baking techniques. The writer must be comfortable creating listicles (also known as list-style articles), how-to articles, and step-by-step tutorials. The contributor should have a solid understanding of SEO and headline writing. Food photography skills are a major plus; we are looking for someone with the ability to explain and demonstrate recipes or techniques through tutorials that include photos. Contributor should have the ability to explain and illustrate to a broad audience. Our voice is modern, approachable, achievable; not fussy.
The writer will be assigned several articles with the opportunity for a longer term contract.
Experience writing on one of the topic areas mentioned above at a blog, magazine or media outlet is highly preferred. Professionals, including recipe developers, chefs, bakers, cake decorators, chef instructors, and the like are preferred, but savvy home cooks are also welcome.
