Seeking Part-time Health Contributor to Help Lead Coverage

Published

on

100 Days in Appalachia is seeking a knowledgeable, inquisitive and motivated part-time contributor to help lead our coverage of the health divides that exist in rural America. The contributor will serve as both a producer of original content and a curator and editor of freelance work, sharing these stories across digital and social platforms.

The ideal candidate can produce assertive reporting that digs into the state of the divides that exist within Appalachia around health care and the complex sources of those divides, while cultivating difference-bridging storytelling and community-building among diverse audiences. Candidates will have a track record of breaking news online and developing content that sheds light on complex topics in a variety of forms — from short blog posts and explainers for social distribution to investigative news and larger team multimedia projects. The ability to produce audio and/or visual elements to accompany these stories is a plus.

Contributors work collaboratively with other reporters, editors and researchers at 100 Days in Appalachia, as well as other special project partners. Dependent on contract, the part-time contributor would also be responsible for developing a network of freelance writers from which they acquire original reporting, editing those and other stories on health issues as assigned.

100 Days in Appalachia is a digital news publication looking to reach both national and international audiences seeking new insights and rural context for the political fractures that resonate across many American communities. 100 Days in Appalachia is an independent nonprofit media outlet incubated at the West Virginia University Reed College of Media Innovation Center in collaboration with West Virginia Public Broadcasting (WVPB) and The Daily Yonder, of the Center for Rural Strategies in Kentucky. Our mission is to push back against the national narrative of the region that has reduced it to a handful of narrow stories and amplify the missing voices and unique perspectives of Appalachians.   

To apply send a resume, cover letter and writing samples to digital managing editor at editor@100daysinappalachia.com.

Interested freelancers can also pitch individual stories for these verticals by using this form.
