Calling all One Chicago franchise superfans! Looper is looking for enthusiastic, hard-working freelance writers to help us write One Chicago franchise-related content. Ideal candidates have at least 1 year of experience writing content for print or the web and are experts on the One Chicago franchise (Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D., Chicago Med, and Chicago Justice), as well as other content similar to Looper. Please note - we are looking for people to write about these shows, not TV writers wanting to write for these shows. We are seeking creative individuals who are self-sufficient and versatile. These positions are work-from-home with flexible, stable hours. Location does not matter.
Looper is the go-to source for the movies, TV shows and video games we all love.

Whether it's revealing Easter eggs and secrets hidden in your favorite films, exposing movie mistakes, highlighting the best deleted scenes, or uncovering the truth about reality TV's strangest stars, Looper has endless entertainment.
