Position Type: Independent Contractor
Articles per month: 1
“ Did you read the most recent Inside Reproductive Health news article by [Your name goes here]? It was so informative and interesting I read it twice.”
As an investigative journalist writing for Inside Reproductive Health, you will be responsible for writing one original article per month on various assigned fertility news topics. The rate of pay is one dollar per word. Each article will be about 500 - 1,200 words in length depending on the type of article. Journalists will be paid on submission, not publication. The topic will be assigned 1-2 weeks before the article is published.
But how do you know if this is your dream work and if Inside Reproductive Health is your dream client?
If you answer yes to these three questions:
Do you have experience reporting as an investigative business news journalist?
Do you have experience reporting on financial topics (ex. Publicly Traded Reports)?
Are you able to provide at least three clips of investigative business feature story writing and financial reporting?
If you are interested in this role and believe you align with everything above then we encourage you to apply.
