Write For Reverb Press!
“Words, words, words,” The Bard wrote in Hamlet. If you write words to share with the world, then we may have a gig for you.
Reverb Press is a progressive media platform that still has that new car smell. We are growing rapidly and looking for genuinely skilled writers with a passion for the cause and a commitment to working hard. We will provide you with access to a national audience, which you will help us to expand.
You must have significant experience writing in American style English (if it’s not your first language, you need to be able to write as though it is). You must be able to write clearly and succinctly. You need to be able to entertain as well as inform an audience. You should be passionate about exposing the truth about important issues, and arguing from a progressive perspective.
You must understand that writing is a process, and Reverb Press is a team. While you will be recognized as the author of your piece, editors will have input on it. You will be expected to communicate and work together with a team of writers and editors.
You will be expected to write on a very regular basis. Our writers range from publishing several pieces a week to several pieces a day. You should be able to consider this gig as a job, not a hobby. You can pick your own topics, but you may frequently receive usually optional assignments. You can set your own pace and your own schedule. You will be paid by Reverb Press depending on your output and audience engagement.
You should be a news junkie of one sort or another. You should know and understand prominent figures, dynamics and trends in politics, economics, fashion, technology, science, and/or culture. You should have a strong sense of the big picture, but also an ability to find telling details, and explain them in context. This means that you should enjoy doing research and be able to find information quickly. You must understand that when you use someone else’s work, you always cite, acknowledge and/or link to their work.
You must be willing to frequently contribute top quality work, with a team of dedicated peers working in synergy for shared success. We are looking for storytellers that recognize our shared potential and will help us achieve it.
You must have a Facebook account, and must be proficient in WordPress. You must be social media savvy (large social media followings are a plus). You must also be fairly computer savvy and proficient in basic photo editing.
