Work for WNV

Freelancers

Waging Nonviolence is looking to expand its coverage of movements and resistance efforts around the world. And we pay!

We want original, reported, lively, engaging, news and analysis features that explore how struggles for justice and peace are building power using nonviolent strategies and tactics. These are stories that should speak to a general audience and help facilitate a greater understanding of how change from the bottom-up actually happens. We are currently seeking three types of freelance stories:

Regular features

These are timely stories (in the 1,500-word range) about current event issues, but with a focus on resistance and organizing. See this and this for recent examples.

Media policy features

Waging Nonviolence currently has a special (but limited time) grant that enables us to pay slightly more than our Regular Feature rate for stories about net neutrality and media policy, as they relate to activists and organizing. Here is an example.

If you have story ideas that fit what we’re looking for, please send a query (that briefly explains the story, who you would interview and why you are in a good position to write about it) to contact@wagingnonviolence.org. We prefer to work with writers from the idea stage, rather than an already complete manuscript.

Interns

Waging Nonviolence is accepting applications for interns on a rolling basis to assist with tasks such as:

  • Developing story ideas and populating the Experiments With Truth feature
  • Using social media to help promote our content
  • Event planning and support
  • Fundraising and membership development

Interns should be able to attend regular meetings in New York City and have a demonstrated interest in journalism, international affairs and nonviolent struggle. To apply please send a resume and cover letter to contact@wagingnonviolence.org.
