Freelance & Full-Time Journalism, Writing, Editing & Communications Jobs for the Week Ending September 29

Advice for Freelancers, Content Badasses, Freelance Journalism Jobs of the Week

Today’s post will be short as I’m under a bunch of deadlines, but suffice it to say that this week’s paid newsletter is PACKED with tons of great opportunities–plus more.

This week, there’s freelance work from Vox, IBT, The Guardian US, Al Jaz, Audubon, and Bob Vila all that pay $1 per word or more. On the full-time front there are jobs from Apple,, Headspace, Morning Brew, Seeking Alpha and Zillow, all with pay well above the $100k mark. 

I’ve included a new section at the end of this week’s newsletter that includes links to past newsletters (for those of you who are brand new and who want to see some past weeks’ content), and finally, the Dishonorable Mention category has grown significantly this week–you’ll have to become a paid subscriber to find out more about these absolutely atrocious outlets paying BELOW minimum wage. Surprisingly enough, they’re household names, too.

You can choose one of two options to get the latest freelance & full-time journalism, writing, editing and communications gigs in your inbox. If you’re wondering how this newsletter differs from the thousands of others out there you can read this post. Otherwise, read on below.

Top Three Reasons This Jobs Newsletter Stands Out From Others on the Market

  1. PAY: All Freelance gigs and calls-for-pitches offer at least $1 per word or a really great byline opportunity. This is especially great if you’re looking to transition to another vertical and really tired of seeing super low rates. All full-time work pays at least $100,000 in salary or more. I note if these jobs are worthwhile or a load of horseshit. I’ve worked a lot of places for a lot of people in my nearly 20 year career. I’ll give you the inside scoop on what the environment is really like.
  2. CONTACTS FOR EDITORS: I include actual email addresses for the right editors to pitch. I spend a lot of time each week making sure that I have the right email addresses for these folks.
  3. All work is REMOTE: Apparently, that’s hard to find these days (according to this Insider story that I just read this morning…) I’ve been a remote worker for a long time–well before Covid shutdowns, so I know how to find these kinds of jobs.

7 Reasons This Weekly Journalism & Communications Jobs Newsletter is Different From All the Rest

Advice for Freelancers, Content Badasses, Freelance Journalism Jobs of the Week, How Do You Find the Best Freelancers?, Managing Your Content Business, Video Content, Why You Need a Freelancer

I’ve been a successful freelance journalist for more than ten years and I have tons of strategies, techniques and talent for finding relevant, high-paying, and worthwhile full-time and freelance journalism, communications, video, television, social media and editing jobs on the market.

Here are seven reasons that this paid journalism and communications jobs newsletter is different from all the others on the market. I’ve been a successful freelance journalist for more than ten years. I have many strategies, techniques, and talent for finding relevant, high-paying, and worthwhile full-time and freelance journalism, communications, video, and editing jobs on the market.

Here are seven reasons why this paid journalism and communications jobs newsletter differs from all the others on the market.

All Freelance Journalism Gigs Pay a Minimum of $1 Per Word

There was a time when $1 per word was a minimum. Today, with the advent of AI, mass layoffs, and more, it’s getting more difficult to find calls-for-pitches that pay this minimum. Each week, I curate freelance gigs and calls directly from editors that pay a minimum of $1 per word or offer an excellent byline opportunity (especially if you’re looking to broaden the type of coverage you do or want to move into a new beat). Paid subscribers to my jobs newsletter get a different curated list in their inbox each week. I also do my best to include outlets you’ve heard of (or those with outstanding reputations).

Editor’s Email Addresses are Included in Calls-For-Pitches

Stop wasting your valuable time trying to construct an editor’s email address. Each freelance call includes a way to contact the right editor. No searching is necessary on your part.

I always recommend that monthly paid subscribers archive these emails as a valuable way to update your contacts and keep the right editor contacts on hand when you have a great pitch that you want to send.

All Jobs & Freelance Gigs are Fully-Remote

I have been a remote worker for most of my career and know that being remote is tremendously valuable as a freelancer and full-timer. All jobs included in this weekly paid newsletter are full-remote unless they offer a fantastic opportunity, in which case, I note where they are located.

In the cases where the job is not remote, I note it at the end of the listing like this:

All Full-Time Journalism & Communications Jobs Pay a Minimum of $100,000 Per Year

Yes. Really. I work hard to find these jobs for paid subscribers and include them in each weekly newsletter. After all, we’re skilled, talented, and highly-experienced professionals.

newsletter, every single week. After all, we’re skilled, talented and highly-experienced professionals and we should be paid professional salaries.

I Have Been Working in Journalism & Communications For More Than 10 Years & Provide Insights You Won’t Find Anywhere Else

Want to know what an office environment is really like? I’ve got you. I have worked in many places with many talented (and, sadly, horribly untalented) people. This newsletter is for you if you want the inside scoop on many major media outlets. I pull no punches (and you can always email me for more details if you have questions about my “Editor’s Notes.”)

If you’d like to know more about me and my work, you can check out my bio at my portfolio site at

You Don’t Have to Troll the Job Listings Each Week Yourself

I do the work for you every single week. The newsletter goes out on Wednesday mornings at 9 a.m. PT.

When you sign up for a monthly $5 subscription, I send you the most recent newsletter and add you to the ongoing list.

If you opt for the $3 option to access just the current week’s content, you’ll only get the most recent newsletter.

Freelance & Full-Time Journalism, Writing & Communications Jobs for the Week Ending September 15

Advice for Freelancers, Content Badasses, Freelance Journalism Jobs of the Week

As expected its a BIG week here in freelance-land.

In spite of some massive personal turmoil, I’ve put together another stellar list of freelance and full-time jobs and gigs for those of you in journalism, writing, editing, video & television and communications–and there are some serious powerhouse outlets on this list.

This week’s newsletter is CHOCK-FULL of great opportunities across the board. Calls for pitches are coming from everyone from Cosmo, and MIT Technology Review, to the New York Times, The Guardian, Travel & Leisure, National Geographic and Vogue.

On the full-time front, there are opportunities with CNN, The Autopian, Lucid, Sports Illustrated, The Washington Post, New York Magazine, Food & Wine, and Yahoo. Comms folks, you’ve got some opportunities with Ducati, Sony and the LA County MTA.

As always, all the gigs in this week’s newsletter pay AT LEAST $1 a word or more, and offer a minimum of at least $100,000 per year in pay (unless otherwise noted, which is rare). If they pay under that range, I’ve noted it as it may still be a great opportunity. I’ve also included all editor’s email addresses so that you can pitch or reach out directly to the folks doing the hiring without having to search up their contact information. In addition, I’m including any insights I have about working for these outlets (as it turns out I’ve worked for a lot of them), to help you make better choices, and career moves in the space.

I’ve also started including Dishonorable Job of the Week, highlighting just how heinous some large and well-known outlets are whether they’re paying absolute trash or simply exploiting skilled journalists and communications staff.

So if you’re looking to jump ship, dip your toe into the freelance world, or just want to get the inside scoop on what its really like to work for some of the biggest and most recognized media brands in the world, this is the newsletter for you. Choose an option below and I’ll send you this week’s newsletter, ASAP.

The Best (Free) Tools For Journalists: LinkedIn for Journalists

Advice for Freelancers, Content Badasses, Managing Your Content Business

When I first began in television, I used to have to go down to the public library in New York City and pull public records to get in touch with everyone from the Governor of New York to my next-door neighbor to book them on the show I worked for. It was labor intensive, frequently difficult, and almost always a pain in the ass. 

These were the days when you maintained a massive Rolodex (which I had!) and protected it at all costs, taking it with you from job to job, because you never knew when you might need to call up the head of the UAW, or reach out to that popular stylist that worked with a guest on your show.

If you’re a freelancer or a full-time journalist, you know far too well how much work it takes to track down contacts, get anecdotes, and find the right person to connect with to book an interview. Just trying to find and connect with the right expert can take hours of research and more than a few wrong turns.

The Evolution of the LinkedIn Pay Wall

Yet, ever since the advent of LinkedIn, (which admittedly has its pros and cons in the modern era), that task has become as simple as typing a few keywords into a search bar and hitting enter. At least, it was much more convenient until LinkedIn started pay-walling the stuff you really need and want as a journalist–like contact information and free messaging with people you’re not connected with. 

During my tenure at CNN, LinkedIn introduced a system tailored for journalists. They verified us as professionals and granted free access to the previously restricted features. This access led to numerous exclusive stories, as our team could spot key company movements or executive changes. LinkedIn became an indispensable tool for trend stories and leads and a must-have for every journalist.

How to Get Free Access to LinkedIn Premium as a Freelance or Full-Time Journalist

When I transitioned to freelancing a decade ago, I feared losing this invaluable access and facing steep subscription fees, which now go into the $30 and up per month range. However, my former colleagues, now leading LinkedIn’s editorial side, recognized the significance of freelancers. They ensured our continued access to the LinkedIn for Journalists Program with an annual renewal process.

If you’re wondering what the Premium tier of access gets you versus what the free model gets you, check out the table below, courtesy of LinkedIn. By far, the most valuable services are the free InMail credits and the ability to get more details about someone you’re not connected with directly. 

I’ve been a part of the LIJP for the last ten years, and I cannot say enough good things about it. Sure, I’ve accidentally let it lapse, but it’s always been easy to re-up when the application period opens each quarter. It’s worth the five minutes of work you have to do and the (now) three-month wait to find out if you’ve been accepted. When you get accepted into the program, you get a premium code that unlocks your access. 

Applications are Open Through October 31, 2023

Applications are now open, and it’s well worth putting together five links to current stories (dated within the last six months)  and a few words about yourself to get access to one of the most valuable databases of professional contacts in the world. You can learn more about the application process here and fill out the form, here. Applications close in October, so make sure you don’t miss the window.

Advice for Freelancers, Content Badasses, Freelance Journalism Jobs of the Week

I wanted to share a recent story (and upcoming series) that one of my subscribers landed with Vox!  I am so thrilled for them! You can check out the first installment of their coverage of the Hawaii wildfires, here.

J. happens to be an incredible photographer and writer with a keen sense of climate justice and human rights. They are also a dear friend who I met through yoga. We keep up over text, mostly, and connect about whatever latest project or pitch we’re working on. Keep an eye on J. and their work, via Instagram.

If you landed a story or a job by pitching someone or applying to a job on my weekly list, hit me up! I’d love to share and promote your work and make sure that it gets all the eyeballs it deserves.

This week’s list includes some great gigs from a whole bunch of UK based pubs (Guardian US, Daily Express, etc.), Thrillist, Reader’s Digest, Robb Report, Fox, People Magazine, Men’s Health, USA Today, ProPublica,, Google, Meta, Instagram, Snap and more. Some salaries are up to $325,000 per year, and there are lots of calls for “trending news” and automotive coverage. There are also some interesting leads from companies I’ve never heard of, but they pay pretty well. 

As always, I’ve included editor email addresses in this newsletter so you can directly contact the right person for your pitch. It’s definitely worth the $5 per month.

I hope the work-hunt is going well for you this summer as the media business continues to change. Feel free to hit me up if you have any questions or want me to help promote your work!

Freelance & Full-Time Journalism, Writing & Editing Jobs for the Week Ending August 18

Advice for Freelancers, Content Badasses, Freelance Journalism Jobs of the Week

Hi Freelancing Friends!

I’m on the road this week for some work at the annual Car Week events in Pebble Beach, but thought I’d get this week’s newsletter into paid-subscribers inboxes so those of you in the know can take advantage of these solid opportunities.

 I’ve been pressed for time this week, so the list is a bit shorter than usual, but it still includes a ton of really high-paying and high-profile jobs.

This week’s list includes jobs and requests for pitches from everyone from The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The Economist, Daily Beast, Men’s Health, The Seattle Times, Rivian, Volvo, Cosmopolitan, Blue Bottle, and more. This week is heavy on the freelance jobs and lighter on the full time jobs, interestingly enough. Pay ranges from $1 per word and up to $70 per hour to  to $217,000 per year. 

Topics include travel and adventure to business, personal finance and breaking news.

As always, I’ve included the editor’s emails where I can find them, which makes pitching ideas (even if you don’t have them right now) that much easier! Basically I build and maintain your Rolodex of editor contacts every, single week. I always suggest that subscribers archive these emails so that when inspiration strikes, they’ve got the right contact for the right outlet.

Freelance & Full-Time Writing, Editing & Journalism Jobs for the Week Ending August 4

Advice for Freelancers, Content Badasses, Freelance Journalism Jobs of the Week

Another week, another set of stellar jobs!

Today’s newsletter for paid subscribers includes opportunities from the LA Times, Vox, Grist, Bustle, US News & World Report, Yahoo!, Intel, Axios, Insider, Peloton, Specialized, Meta, Ford, Stripe, Sonos and a whole bunch of others. It also includes editor’s email addresses! Pay is up to $2 per word, and more than $373,000 per year (which, WOW).

While the freelance side of this feels a little lighter than it has in a few weeks, we are entering into the final month of the slowest time of the year for most of us, which is always a bit of a nailbiter. 

If you’re out there hunting down gigs like I am, you know that there’s been an increase in the number of what I like to call “unpaid work” interviews. If you saw this week’s blog post, you already know the story–but I’ve included that rather questionable job on this list as a word of warning. Bonus points if you’re a subscriber and you spot it. 

I hope you’re enjoying my candid takes on all these postings, outlets and opportunities. I enjoy putting this together for you each week. If you’re a subscriber and having a hard time finding your newsletter, check you spam folder. A few of you reached out to let me know you didn’t get last weeks and it turns out it got spammed. Mailchimp doesn’t always play well with certain email providers, so the message might very well be in that dreaded folder. Be sure to mark the email(and my email address) as “NOT SPAM” so when the newsletter goes out next week, you’re the first to see it!

Hit me up with any questions or thoughts on your freelance life. I’d love to hear about your wins as well as any of your complaints about the changing nature of this freelance beast.  Happy Hunting!

If you’d like to become a subscriber, it’s just $5 per month or you can give this week’s newsletter a try for just $3. Choose your adventure and come explore the #freelancelife with someone who’s been doing it for a LONG time.

How to Handle the “Unpaid-Work” Interview

Advice for Freelancers, Content Badasses, Managing Your Content Business, Why You Need a Freelancer

What do you do when the job opportunity you’re interested in wants story ideas and “sample” work before they decide to interview or pay you?

It’s the age-old question: Do you do a whole bunch of free work to possibly land a gig? The answer is frequently fraught and often frustrating–but here’s what you need to know. 

“Send me three well-researched pitches…” and Maybe I’ll Pay You for Them, or Maybe I’ll Assign Them to my Full-Time Staff

I was recently trolling the job listings and came across a freelance ghostwriting gig that looked promising on LinkedIn. It was an “Easy Apply” gig, but upon reading the description, it turned out that the poster wanted applicants to email them directly with as many as 10 (!!!) links to relevant bylines, a cover letter, and a resume. 

“Ok, fine.” I sighed and got to emailing. I also clicked that “Easy Apply” button, just to indicate that I was a serious applicant and interested in the spot. 

A few hours later, I got a note in my LinkedIn Messages. There, the job poster enumerated a proposed “exercise” assignment, as he called it. 

He requested that I come up with a “provocation,” which immediately set alarm bells off in my head. In today’s hotly partisan world, that generally means an “unpopular opinion,” or “hot take,” that frequently smells of rage baiting, a common technique to boost views and interactions on a website. He even went through a list of questions I should ask myself about the topic (cue the deep side eye from experienced journalists). 

His note went on to say that once the company approved my “provocation,” I “will find an excellent expert on the matter,” who could argue that point of view, then I’d reach out to that “expert” to “get their interest,” (MLM anyone?). At that point, the hiring company would decide if I should proceed to “work with that person to write the article.”

The kicker? “We can offer you $500 if we decide to publish the article based on the assignment.


The Issues Around the Unpaid-Work Interview

If you subscribe to my weekly freelance and full-time journalism job listings, you know I pull no punches about how journalists are paid and what professional-level writers, editors, television producers, podcasters, and broadcasters deserve for their experience and work.

I point out when a job or gig is very well paying (those on my list pay at least $1 per word or more for freelance work, and generally above $100,000 per year if it’s full-time) and offer any insight I may have about the workplace. (In case you don’t know, I’ve worked for a LOT of high-profile outlets and places, and I can tell you MANY of the nitty gritty details about all of them.)

I advocate for a fair, living wage to be paid to those of us who are professional journalists working hard to dig up the truth about the world and share knowledge because I sincerely believe (to quote my CNN sweatshirt that hangs on the back of my office chair) The World Needs Journalists. 

All of this brings me to the core issue of the “Unpaid-Work” interview: Sharing story ideas, pitches, and even doing “exercise” assignments before an employer has even decided if they want to interview or hire you is a SCAM that’s perpetuated by corporate overlords who aim to suck every ounce of creativity out of the largest number of applicants. 

Read that again. The Unpaid-Work Interview Is. A. Scam.

How do I know? I’ve seen it happen–from both inside and outside major media outlets.

I’ve watched a number of major media outlets (who will publicly remain unnamed) put applicants through the “Unpaid-Work” rigamarole because they’ve burned out their own journalists and content creators so fiercely that the full-time employees are mere shells.

I’ve seen those stories, pitches, and “exercise” assignments sent in by job seekers, stolen by management, and assigned to junior staff reporters just so those managers can tout how they have their “finger on the pulse” of what’s happening in the world. “Hey, look at how great our numbers are,” they pronounce, knowing full well they mined hard-working job applicants for the ideas. 

I’ve also seen it from the job seekers’ side of the equation–both in freelance and full-time opportunities. I’ve even gone so far as to do one or two of these Unpaid-Work Interviews because I really did want to work for the outlet or publication.

Sadly, after doing a couple of them and later discovering that my ideas had been stolen by the outlet or publication and assigned to someone else, I refuse to do them anymore. I also have put those outlets (and the editors I dealt with there) on no-fly lists, meaning that I will not work for, write for, or publish with those people or publications. 

How to Handle an “Unpaid-Work” Interview?

There are a couple of ways you can handle the Unpaid-Work Interview:

  • Decide to go for it, expecting your content to be stolen if you are not hired. 
  • Decide to pass, and wish the job poster well. (i.e., “Thank you so much for the opportunity to move forward in the interview process, but unfortunately, I’ll need to withdraw my application for this position. Best of luck in your search…”

At this point in my career, the Unpaid-Work Interview is a major red flag that immediately takes that publication and editor off of my radar. It’s really up to you how you choose to proceed, but if you decide to go for the Unpaid-Work Interview, know that your work will likely end up under someone else’s byline. 

Oh, and funny enough, I got the exact same, word-for-word, email in my inbox about 12 hours after the note landed in my LinkedIn messages about that job.

 If you want to see which freelance job I highly recommend skipping, become a paid subscriber, and I’ll send you this week’s newsletter with that position highlighted as one to avoid. 

Sound off in the comments (or drop me an email) about the WORST job interview requests you’ve seen. I’d love to commiserate.

Freelance & Full-Time Journalism Jobs for the Week Ending July 28

Advice for Freelancers, Content Badasses, Freelance Journalism Jobs of the Week

Hey there, Freelancing Friends! 

This week’s newsletter is now in the inboxes of paid subscribers! With more than 50+ new freelance and full-time well-paying opportunities on the market, it’s definitely prime time to launch your freelancing career. I just added 10 more really solid leads this morning!

That being said, it’s been a rough week in media. As I am sure you know, last week Hearst laid off 41 staffers (including some good friends), and the cuts keep coming. That means that the freelance space will continue to be hyper-competitive, and client demands are going to change considerably, at least for the foreseeable future.

The good news is there are more than 50 jobs and gigs on this list. I hope you find something that tickles your fancy and opens doors of opportunity!  As a bonus for those of you who make it all the way to the end of this newsletter,  this week, I’ve included a random job posting that is so strange it made me laugh. 

This week there are jobs and gigs from everyone from Rolling Stone, Vogue, Cosmopolitan, CNN (my old employer), Tesla (in case you’re itching to work for Elon),  Real Simple,  Food & Wine, Wine Enthusiast, Tom’s Guide, Time Out, Business Insider, Angi, Nerdwallet, Birkenstock, RAND, Morning Brew, Yahoo!, AARP and more.

Pay is up to a whopping $2 per word, $12,000 per month (!!!)  or yearly salaries of as much as $240,000 per year. 

Subscribe for $5 per month or get access to this newsletter each week. Or get just this week’s job postings for just $3. I’ll send it to you ASAP!

I also put together a post on how to set boundaries around your “per-word” work to help you figure out how to deal with time creep, the enemy of freelancers everywhere. A friend recently reached out to ask how to deal with a client who is paying her per word but expects her to be available for all of his random meetings, content call, and other events that are well outside of her contracted scope of work. It’s becoming more and more common in the space, and it’s vital that we all figure out how to navigate the situation with grace and boundaries. I even wrote up an email template you can use to respond to situations like this. 

Drop me a note if you want some advice or have noticed a shift in client demands! I may be able to offer some advice. After all, I’ve been doing the freelance thing for nearly ten years and have a ton of experience in the space.


(Plus, get free access to the job listings for 1 month!)

Did you miss July’s free freelance journalist workshop? No need to worry, I’m planning on having another in August!

Whether you need help honing your story ideas or want to know how to find resources or what the current state of freelancing is, I can help!

The first 30-minute Zoom session is free and I’ll be offering these workshops once per month at 12 pm PT! Attend and you’ll get a free month of access to these listings!
