This may be a good opportunity for freelancers or journalism students:
GlobalPost is looking for part-time writers to join their Breaking News and Social Media team. The writers will be responsible for contributing three or four 250-word news briefs a day. The stories will be a mix of important breaking news pieces and fun or quirky global stories that have the potential to go viral.
We are looking for people with strong news judgment as well as strong online skills. Writers are responsible for producing their own pieces – entering them into our system, adding links, adding photos, writing web-friendly headlines, sending them to our community on Twitter and Facebook.
Writers can be based anywhere. Send resume, Twitter handle and links to articles and/or blog posts to Hanna Ingber at email@example.com.
