Seeking regular freelance contributors to cover all aspects of life in New York City for locals and new residents.
We are looking for skilled and experienced writers who know and love New York City (whether you're a native or a recent transplant) and can commit to contributing regularly if selected. You must have experience writing online content. Basic knowledge of html and SEO is preferred.
We are looking for people with creative ideas and diverse perspectives on Manhattan. We are interested in those with specific areas of expertise (music scene, dating, living on the cheap, real estate, focus on particular neighborhood, etc.) and generalists too.
This is a flexible gig with no set hours, but the ideal candidate will be able to commit to contributing at least a few times per month for the next 3-6 months.
Please email your resume and at least two representative writing samples (links to resume and online samples preferred).
Please also tell us why you're interested in contributing and what aspects of NYC you most want to cover. If you have expert credentials in a particular area, let us know.
