freelancing opportunities

Posted On: November 8, 2017


Media Organization: amNewYork

Company Description

amNewYork publishes a free newspaper Monday through Friday focused on New York City. We are owned by Newsday, and sometimes swap content with one another.

Job Description

AmNewYork is interested in working with student journalists, who have some experience freelancing or publishing articles or are at a stage where they are ready to freelance.

We’re mostly looking for help with our real estate section. We pay $75 for straightforward, 400-word stories that can usually be reported out from home with a few phone calls or quickly covered by attending one event. We pay as much as $250 for covers and other more involved stories.

We’d love to touch base with students who have ideas to pitch, as well as those who want to discuss freelancing more generally and are interested in reporting out assignments when available.

Note: I am in the office Sundays through Thursdays. I can be available on Fridays if arranged in advance or to report on breaking news.

To Apply

If you have story pitches, please email them to me. If you would like to discuss freelancing more generally, please shoot me an email with your resume, freelancing/professional experience and a sense of when you'll be available. I can then set up a time to call you and take it from there.
