External Assignment Journalists will be tasked with finding and writing articles about unique stories in each of your communities. These stories, topic-wise, should be (for the most part) unrelated to TLG’s campaigns. For example, in a Local Sustainability Campaign, an External Assignment Journalist would write articles unrelated to environmentalism. Instead, you may interview a new local business owner about their hopes for their enterprise or write about a local initiative to help the homeless or comment on a local political campaign. In a nutshell, the articles written by External Assignment Journalists serve as a stream of content for TLG’s website and social media aside from our campaign material. If you are somebody with a creative wild side who likes writing short and snappy content without a prompt, this role is for you!
You'll generally be expected to contribute a minimum of 2-3 articles per month. The amount of time you spend writing depends on the length of your articles, but we recommend 2 hours per week.
Fill out the form attached to apply for a role as an External Assignment Journalist. We will get back to you via email within 24 hours if we select you for this position. If you haven't received an email within that time frame, remember to check your spam folder. We look forward to hearing from you!
