Movie News Reporter in New York City
Ideal candidates should be passionate and knowledgeable about movies and modern pop culture while possessing the ability to convey that passion through their writing. Accuracy is critical but we’re not just hiring someone who can reword a press release. We need a reporter who can explain the news in their own words and through research and experience provide commentary that adds to the story, puts it in context or entertains our readers. Better still if you can do all three in the same sentence.
To be a success you’ll need to be committed, self-motivated, and energetic. The news never stops coming and you’ll be counted on to provide steady coverage.
Responsibilities: We’ll expect at least 70 high quality stories of medium length from you every month. Do the math and that works out to around 3 – 5 reports filed every single day.
Formal education in film or journalism is not required, but prior experience reporting on movies is. Experience conducting interviews is helpful, but not required. We're primarily looking for someone in New York City. You should also have and know how to use Photoshop or some other image editing software to resize images. If you know a little very basic HTML formatting, that helps too. Don’t apply unless you’ve done this on some level before and you think you can keep up with our high-pressure pace.
This position pays a small but competitive, per article freelance rate for qualified writers.
To apply send us links to published samples of your work along with a resume to the email address specified above. Include the job title you're applying for in the title of your e-mail..
