Jobs and Internships

Narratively is Seeking Guest Editors!

Narratively is looking for one or more talented Guest Editors who will assign and edit one in-depth narrative feature each month. This is a freelance position, with the possibility to expand into a larger role.

We’re looking for someone who has:

  • Experience assigning and editing feature stories
  • A broad personal network of writers you have worked with in the past
  • Enthusiasm for elevating underrepresented voices
  • Passion for crafting dramatic and unique storytelling that celebrates quirky, unconventional underdogs and unsung heroes.

Editors of color and others from underrepresented groups are very strongly encouraged to apply.

At Narratively we publish experienced writers as well as first-time authors who have particularly unique stories to tell, so we’re looking for editors who are comfortable working with both. Each editor will be responsible for soliciting their own story ideas from writers in their networks, then shepherding them from pitch to publication.

Guest editors will assign and edit one story per month; pay rate is $40/hour.

If you’re interested and fit the criteria above, please email [email protected] by April 15 with:

  1. A little about yourself, including your experience as a writer and editor
  2. Links to a few examples of feature stories you have edited
  3. Tell us about the network of writers you’ve worked with in the past and how you would reach out to writers in this role
  4. What’s your favorite recent Narratively story and why?
