Media Organization: New Women New Yorkers
New Women New Yorkers is a non-profit organization that empowers young immigrant women through workforce development and networking, and community building and storytelling events.
We are looking for contributors to the New Women New Yorkers blog, which features interviews and portraits of immigrant women in NYC, profiles of neighborhoods throughout the city, event write-ups, personal essays, and short feature articles on a range of topics, from transgender issues for immigrant women to the IDNYC program for undocumented immigrants.
We do take pitches as well as assign out stories regularly and we are open to multimedia formats such as infographics and photo essays. For new journalists looking to cover immigration issues or write about their personal experiences with immigration, our blog offers a supportive and careful editing process and we make it a point to maintain each writer's individual voice.
Please contact blog manager/editor Sarah Amandolare at
No previous published clips are required. Let us know very briefly why you are interested in writing for us and what types of stories you might like to work on.
