What’s This About?
We’re a Brooklyn-based lifestyle startup looking to hire a few freelance writers to blog about planning celebrations, entertaining at home, the best recipes for parties, making the perfect cocktail and/or how-to tips for those aspiring to be the next B. Smith or Martha Stewart.
What We’re Looking For:
We’re looking for writers with their own voice and expertise. The writer we hire will be expected to regularly pitch story ideas and write stories they’re assigned.
Our ideal candidate is active on social media – using Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest and/ or Facebook to engage their followers with content related to leisure and lifestyle.
If you currently blog about cooking and/or decorating, we want to hear from you. If you’re an event planner, we want your expertise. If you have an eye for design when it comes to home décor, we want you to write about your recommendations. If your friends are constantly requesting your cooking or specialty cocktails, we want you to write about it.
We pay $150 per blog post (500-word minimum for each post). Writers are paid on a monthly basis for stories assigned and posted on our site. This is not a full-time position.
How to Apply:
Email us a cover letter detailing why you want to write for us. In your cover letter, you MUST include:
- Why we should hire you.
- A pitch for a story idea on any of the subjects described above.
- Links to 2-3 writing samples.
- Include a link to your blog if you have one.
