Lifestyle and Culture Feature Writer - Women.com
Static Media, Remote
Work at Static Media
Salary: 8 cents per word
Level: Experienced (Non-Manager)
Static Media has recently acquired Women.com and the site is undergoing an exciting redesign. We’re building a large team to contribute to the soon-to-be relaunched site and are seeking enthusiastic, hard-working freelance writers to join our team. Ideal candidates have at least one year of experience writing content for print or the web with a focus on women’s lifestyle content, including culture, wellness, beauty, fashion, sex, and relationships, as well as politics from a LGBTQI+ and women-focused perspective, including but not limited to reproductive rights and social justice. We are looking for creative individuals who are self-sufficient and versatile. These positions are work-from-home with flexible, stable hours. Location does not matter; U.S. and international candidates are encouraged to apply.
Women isn’t your average lifestyle site. We’re acutely aware that the topics we cover impact your immediate life and future, and therefore, we’re actively committed to driving conversation rather than simply reacting to the news and issues. No matter the subject, whether it’s politics and social justice or beauty and fashion, every article will inspire you to think critically, as nothing less is deserving of the times.
Feature Writer Responsibilities:
- Claim feature article topics from a large selection of assignments
- Research, pitch, and write 2600- to 3000-word articles in a custom CMS with a one-week to one-day turnaround, depending on the topic and timeliness of the article
- Contribute to and follow the guidelines of our style guide, editorial strategy and publishing standards to uphold quality of content
- Compensation: 8 cents per word
Minimum one year editorial experience writing and editing. Experience with building content in a CMS.
How to apply:
To apply for this job, please submit the following materials:
- Your resume
- A letter of intent
- Three professional writing samples (attach these in a PDF or link to them in your cover letter)
Applications missing any of these elements will not be considered.
We believe representation matters at Static Media and strongly encourage people of color, members of the LGBTQ+ community, veterans, those with disabilities, and individuals from other underrepresented groups to apply.
