We are a place where millennials can read what their actual peers think about actual events — a place where 20-somethings can discuss, dissect, and debate the cultural and political occurrences of the moment. It's a site where you can not only get news and opinions on what's trending, but where you can interact with people around the world on the issues that matter most to our generation.
About our writing opportunities:
Writers will spend between 3-7 hours each week developing, writing, and publishing stories online. Those who hope to rise through the ranks to paid columnist positions faster are encouraged to write more often. This is a remote opportunity.
Writers will be in contact with the editorial staff at our New York City office, and will be encouraged to start developing ideas and planning stories as soon as possible.
