VOLUNTEERSHIP #3: ARTICLE WRITING and COPY EDITING

Want published writing samples? Well then, you must have a descriptive writing style and be hard-working, enthusiastic, a go-getter attitude and have a fresh outlook.

Articles will cover fashion, home décor, travel, sex/dating and other important issues for our readers. We’re looking for writers with a fun and personality-packed writing style to write, edit/improve articles and contribute to our popular magazine.

Please email us with your resume and appropriate (short and funny/creative) writing samples, and be prepared for us to contact you for additional on-the-spot samples.

Writing isn’t like a typical job, you need to build up your portfolio of published articles. You should be writing as much as you can possibly manage in your spare time. The more published articles you have under your belt (as long as they’re great), the more likely a big publication will hire you for a paying job. Many HR people at large publishers follow Urbanette writers.

Our writers need to spend 10 hours editing for every one published article. We all have to do our time editing and making the magazine better. When the magazine improves, it makes your writing samples worth more. Editing is also an essential exercise to improve your writing, and something very important to have on your resume. You’ll need to have a comedic and witty writing style to help us add spice to articles by inserting personality and edge. You can do minor edits to add personality, or major edits to articles to solidify their focus, etc.

Do a good job and you’ll get great published samples and a kick-ass reference letter.

Only apply if you fit these qualifications:

  • Have a creative writing style
  • Interested in women’s issues
  • Impeccable grammar and spelling
  • 100% reliable
  • Self-starting and hard-working
  • Independent, able to work remotely
  • Bonus: student or graduate in a related field (journalism, humanities, English)

Must haves: a descriptive and personality-filled writing style, attention to detail, hard-working, motivated, understand proper syntax, perfect grammar and punctuation skills. Please email us with your resume and an example of something you’ve edited (to make it less dry/more engaging), and be prepared for us to contact you for additional on-the-spot samples.
