Freelance Culture & Entertainment Writer

UrbanDaddy is looking for a seasoned, versatile writer to post strictly editorial pieces for us 2-3 days a week. We’re in the process of expanding our fields of coverage and we’re looking for new voices—especially those who feel their genius and creativity is being stifled at other, lesser publications—to help us. You’ll work closely with our editorial team to pitch, source and write breaking news posts, roundups and analysis on pop-culture, entertainment, politics and travel for web, email and mobile. 

Here’s what you’ll do:
-source stories from around the web/social/in person

-write 3-5 posts of varying length per day

-pitch posts on breaking news, cultural analysis, SEO-drivers

-pitch and write larger stories to be paid on a project basis

-idea/copy revisions based on edits

Here’s what you’ll bring to the table:
-strong ability to shift attention back and forth between different subject matter

-a wide breadth of knowledge of pop-culture and current events

-expert web research skills

-wit and incisiveness in all your writing

-clean copy

-at least two years of previous editorial writing experience 

-ability to think about and articulate the story beyond the story

-unending creativity

-passion for your own ideas

It’s extra great if you:
-have CMS experience

-have beginner Photoshop experience

We prefer someone to work out of our Manhattan office, but we’re flexible on that. In addition to a day rate, we can offer gratis workspace for your non-UD weekdays, because WeWork is expensive. If you’re interested, send a resume, links to samples and your social media handles. WE WILL NOT CONSIDER YOUR APPLICATION IF YOU DON'T SEND SAMPLES. We can’t wait to hear from you(!)
