Bustle.com is a new force in media: a news, entertainment, lifestyle, and fashion site for young women driven by a diverse and energetic collection of contributors. What we have in common with each other and our readers is that we're insatiably curious about the world. We care about what's working and what isn't, about fashion, politics, technology, diversity, books, celebrities, health, beauty, work, sex, friendship, and how to make amazing food on a budget. These are the stories we deliver every day in a format that's always getting better, quicker, and more engaging.
Bustle is seeking funny and creative freelance writers to contribute thoughtful content to its lifestyle vertical. Writers may be general interest or specialize in one topic under the lifestyle umbrella — home/decor, DIY, food, feminism, health, sex/dating, etc.— and should be able to contribute either daily or weekly (we’re very flexible and are looking for both daily news writers and evergreen contributors). Applicants should have at least two years of writing experience (internships/personal blogs count) and a strong individual voice.
Please include a resume, cover letter with experience and availability (do you want to be a daily or weekly contributor?), and 3 related clips (links are preferred) on the next page. In your cover letter, please discuss your specific area of interest.
***ALSO, please pitch two lifestyle stories that you could see on Bustle.com. Pitches should include a hed and a sentence or two about the piece.***
