Job Description

Well+Good, the premier lifestyle and news publication dedicated to the wellness scene, has an immediate opening for a full-time wellness writer, based in its airy and light-filled New York offices, where there may also occasionally be free green juices and coffee.

The writer will be responsible for writing and producing news and feature articles, with a focus on natural beauty and wellness, as well as email newsletters.

The ideal candidate will have a master’s in journalism or strong journalism background; two years’ experience writing for an online lifestyle site, preferably within health and wellness; and is passionate about natural and organic beauty.

This is a fast-paced reporting role. It requires stepping into the flow of a news room, and working alongside a smart and passionate editorial team.

This is the perfect opportunity for a writer who cares about wellness and journalism in equal measure.

The ideal candidate should also be positive, extremely organized and adept at working under tight daily deadlines.

The ability to teach us a thing or two about crow pose or willingness to share your favorite DIY face mask recipes is also totally a bonus.
