Media-Related Job

Media Organization: AXN Insider

Company Description

AXN Insider is a Washington D.C.-based strategy company for emerging market entrepreneurs. Using our Write-Speak-Meet model, we connect founders to media, networks, and investors in the West to expand their companies and attract capital. Our team is based in DC, New York, London, and Abidjan.

Job Description


AXN Insider produces 800-word op-eds on behalf of African entrepreneurs and places those pieces in the Wall Street Journal, Entrepreneur, FT, Newsweek, Al-Jazeera, and elsewhere. These op-eds give our clients a voice in the West that helps them attract the resources they need to grow.

To help us meet demand, we are recruiting a team of skilled, reliable writers from NY and London journalism schools as freelancers. Each 750-900 word op-ed must be sharp, well-researched, and in the form of a credible argument. Applicants must have the flexibility to complete an op-ed (research, first draft, edits, final draft) in 5 days' time. The structure of the op-ed is always the same: an eye-catching introduction, three paragraphs (each its own crystal clear argument), and a conclusion.

The idea and skeleton will come from our team but the end product will be ghostwritten by you. This is a great way to learn the landscape, gain experience, and refine writing skills

To Apply

If interested, please send me your resume and a writing sample (3 pages max) that is as close to an op-ed in form as possible to Avril Perry (
