Position: Freelance writers/stringers Location: New York City [or anywhere]
About the Position: The Dodo will pay content creators as freelancers on a per piece basis and may offer bonuses based on performance.
About You: The Dodo has staff reporters who cover breaking animal stories. Now we want freelance writers who can create infectious content about animals. This means writers who can research, curate and design web posts that are irresistibly shareable on social media. There is no one formula for this, and we would love to work with any writer who can come up with the kind of animal content that people want to show off to friends and family.
How to Apply: Please send us one example that we can evaluate and consider publishing. You can submit it via a word doc and email it here: firstname.lastname@example.org. Or you can create your own Dodo community page here: https://www.thedodo.com/core/in/ and post it yourself. Then let us know it's up by emailing us at the same email address: email@example.com.
About The Dodo: We're witnessing a profound shift in the way people regard animals. They matter more to us now than before. We think of them less as objects at our disposal, as study increasingly reveals them to be intelligent, emotional and social beings. The Dodo is committed to learning about them, interested in understanding them and intent on improving our relationships with them. The Dodo is also transfixed with celebrating them – from all the wonders in the animal kingdom to all the amazing things our pets do every day. If it helps us appreciate animals, we want to share it.
