As Freelance Writer for the Green Alliance, you’ll be responsible for generating compelling, accurate, and engaging copy (typically between 600-1500 words) for a variety of outlets, including online blogs, newsletters, newspapers, and magazines.

We do not write press releases; we produce publish-ready news-style stories that mimic in both quality and approach the style and focus of the publications themselves. A background in journalism or a related field is preferred.

 

We are looking for an outgoing, energetic, and optimistic individual who works well independently. The ideal candidate understands the realities of working for a growing small business powered by a little budget and a whole lot of entrepreneurial spirit.

Strong writing skills and the ability to complete stories in a timely fashion are a must. Specifically, we’re looking for writers who know how to strike the delicate balance between journalistic standards of accuracy, engaging storytelling, and Business Partner promotion. A passion for the environment and social responsibility and an interest in business, is a must. While the Green Alliance's mission and work are pretty unique, we do prefer candidates with experience suited to the following duties:

• Feels comfortable interviewing and engaging in constructive conversation
• Has a good sense of humor
• Works to complete stories quickly and effectively, without sacrificing quality
• Understands basic journalistic standards
• Writes creatively for print and online applications, in a way that gets noticed
• Is knowledgeable about sustainability and business
