Wanted: Future of Work Writers

Talent Request: Future of Work Writers

  • Are you a writer specialising in the future of work?
  • Do you have experience with longform journalism, corporate white papers or research reports in this niche?
  • Do you wish you could pursue ambitious thinking and reporting, but still get paid what you're worth?

I'm seeking writers for a new editorial project that blurs the lines between media, think-tank and brand publishing. I'm looking for collaborators with their own bold lens on work and technology, and an unwaivering passion for dialogue and storytelling about the most pressing aspects of our future as humans.

My budget ranges from €1 to to €2.50 per word depending on the nature of your involvement and the complexity and turnaround time of the assignment. All of my projects are run 100% remote, so I'm open to hearing from folks based anywhere in the world.

However, please don't send me the one listicle you wrote about remote work in the time of Covid-19 and a link to your website that says you focus on something else. This isn't an opportunity for generalists.  I'm specifically looking for specialists with proven experience and published links in the future of work space.

How to apply

To apply, please email lauren@laurenrazavi.com with a few lines about you and your background, 2-3 of your most relevant clippings, and a link to your website or strongest social media profile.

The application window is open until midnight CET on 31st August 2020. I'll send out a general message to everyone who's been in touch by 30th September 2020 with an update, so please feel free to follow up in early October if you haven't heard anything by then.

Keep in touch

8 OCT 2020 UPDATE: Thanks to everybody who applied for this opportunity. I've put together a quick blog post outlining some of the most common mistakes I saw in the ~200 submissions. I hope this insight helps you find the right projects and win more work in future.
