Smart Women Write is a blogging platform by and for cerebral self-identifying women and non-binary writers engaging with the creative process. We are seeking to add another blogger to our team.
Our current fields of expertise are in history, digital humanities, public humanities, translation, gender studies, and education. While our current authors hold terminal degrees in their fields, this is not a requirement. We are looking for writers who can help diversify our offerings in the following fields, which you should define broadly: reportage, creative writing, digital media creation, technical writing, editing, and publishing.
Bloggers each contribute a monthly blog post of no more than 1,000 words and share in the management of our social media. Our blog posts address the various types of writing we do, work-life balance, reflections on the creative process, self-care for writers, how-to guides, and current events explored through a writer’s lens.Smart Women Write began in August 2016 as a labor of love; it’s an inclusive and affirming space where we can write and explore ideas. At this time, the site is not monetized and the blogging team does not receive any financial remuneration.
To apply, please send a cover letter and 2-3 writing samples (pdfs or links if online) to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 10. In your letter, include your fields of interest/expertise, some ideas for blog posts you would like to write, and links to your social media (we are not checking for numbers of followers, but would like to see the ways in which you engage with the world). We will contact successful applicants for informal skype interviews by the end of March. Before applying, please familiarize yourself with our tone at www.smartwomenwrite.com and @SmartWomenWrite on Twitter.
Applications from women or non-binary writers who are disabled, queer, undocumented, and/or of color are especially encouraged. We are also open to submissions from writers outside of the US.
