Hey, D.C., Guess What? It's Time to Write for PolicyMic!


If you live, work, or go to school in the Washington, D.C. area, guess what? It's time to write for PolicyMic. You'll have the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of digital media, get experience composing viral content, and work directly with an editor to receive feedback on your writing and to help promote your work.

This is PolicyMic's first city-inspired challenge and we want you to write about your topics of interest and expertise. Whether you're writing for a think tank and want more legs for your work, or are a university student looking to build a portfolio, PolicyMic can provide a platform for your voice and a global audience of smart millennials, ready and willing to engage your perspective.

PolicyMic is thrilled to already have an amazing community of writers in D.C. New writers will join this elite network of PolicyMic pundits and gain access to happy hours and other off-line events in the city.
