Waging Nonviolence is looking to expand its coverage of movements and resistance efforts around the world. And we pay!
We are seeking a journalist and/or activist with writing experience who can produce at least three short posts per week about current events related to activism and resistance efforts around the world. Writers should be versatile enough to provide insightful movement-oriented analysis on breaking news (for a variety of issues), as well as uncover overlooked stories that highlight the importance of organizing and people power. (See our recent blog posts for reference.)
This is a part-time position that pays $400 per month. To apply, email firstname.lastname@example.org with a short description of your professional background, the issues you have experience writing about (with links to published articles), and two story ideas for posts you would have written this week. Resume/CV is not necessary. Application deadline: March 3, 2015.
