Storythings is looking for a Writer/Editorial Lead to work with us for 12 months on a quarterly digital publication for a major US foundation.
The role will include writing, curating and editing content for a publication centred around a US foundation’s residency program that invites best-in-class scholars, writers, artists and policymakers to month-long residencies and convenings with the purpose of advancing their work and encouraging cross-cultural exchange.
It will also include contributing to other Storythings projects, such as writing and editing work for other clients or our own projects.
You will have experience in working with or writing for nonprofits, or at least a demonstrable understanding of how they work; and experience of writing and editing narrative and long-form editorial – particularly writing about people and ideas, coordinating media content, and producing content for social and other platforms. You will also need to have experience with CMS systems to write, edit and publish articles.
