Media Organization: Forbes
Forbes Media is a global media, branding and technology company, with a focus on news and information about business, investing, technology, entrepreneurship, leadership and affluent lifestyles.
The Forbes business section is looking for contributing writers for a wide variety of subjects.
Contributors write five articles a month. You can write news hits, features and analytical pieces. There's room for creativity as long as you have a business angle. A finance journalism background is not required.
See the subject areas below. Please only apply for 1-2 max.
MEDIA & ENTERTAINMENT: We are open to other beats, but we are especially interested in writers to cover the business of: amusement parks, Bollywood, books, comedy, comics/graphic novels, music (genre-specific a plus, especially K-pop and hip-hop), news media (particularly TV but also print) and television. We are also looking for writers who are able to do quick takes on time-sensitive news items.
RETAIL: Again, we are open to other interests but we are especially interested in writers to cover toys/collectibles or sneakers as well as writers who can cover time-sensitive news.
We are also looking for writers to cover the business of food and sports as well as the science of sex/sexual health.
To apply, please send the following with the subject line "FORBES APPLICATION: [SUBJECT AREA]":
(1) Brief bio. I don't care if it's first or third person (though second would be strange). Just give a sense of your writing experience, interests and relevant expertise.
(2) Links to three clips. College publications and blog posts count.
(3) Link to portfolio (if you have one).
No word docs or PDFs please.
To apply for the RETAIL or MEDIA & ENTERTAINMENT section, please email producer Hayley Cuccinello (firstname.lastname@example.org). For SPORTS, FOOD or SEX, please email producer Dan Kleinman (email@example.com).
