If you're looking for an opportunity to write for a "Best of 2018 podcast" (as selected by Apple!) with upcoming narrators that include celebrities like Alec Baldwin and Jeffrey Wright (Westworld)...
You're in the right place.
The Mission is looking for a talented writer to help write seasons of The Story podcast. The Story is a historical fiction podcast that highlights the unknown backstories of people who changed the world.
Before applying, please:
- Find The Story on iTunes or Google Play!
- Listen to AT LEAST 2 episodes of The Story to understand what type of writing we are looking for
- Rate and review the podcast if you have time ;)
- Then apply to this listing, if this seems like a fun project to work on!
Who are we looking for?
- A professional writer who has writing samples that include both non-fiction and fiction (historical fiction writing samples are a major bonus!!)
- Someone with thick skin who can incorporate feedback quickly
- A skilled researcher and fact checker - you know where to look for good backstory details, studies, and research that make the episode priceless and goes beyond common knowledge of that person we are highlighting
- ie. we do not want an entire article containing only facts or details that can be found on the first page of Google or directly from Wikipedia ;)
- 5+ years writing experience
- High attention to detail
What to include in your application:
- Links to your published work
- Why you would be a good fit for this role
- Your fee per season, word, or per completed story (each story will be 1500 words, and each season will have 10 stories)
We're looking forward to reviewing your application!
PS- If all goes well with working together, we have a lot of writing work that involves writing scripts for world-class celebrity actors to perform, that will reach millions of people.
