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?

About Narratively

Narratively is a storytelling platform and production company that celebrates humanity through diverse, authentic, high-quality content. Our human-centric work spans longform writing, digital video, podcasts, TV and film and our platform, Narratively.com (one of TIME’s “50 Best Websites”), is the creative engine behind much of that storytelling. It is home to thousands of true, original human-interest stories fueled by Narratively’s highly-vetted global network of journalists and storytellers who come to us with their passion projects that are too unique, too quirky, too in-depth, or too evergreen for mainstream media. 

Our focus on diverse, untold human stories extends from Narratively.com to Narratively Studios, our rapidly growing TV and film division, which is powered and inspired by Narratively’s vast library of true storytelling and develops and produces scripted and unscripted television and films with top industry partners including Warner Bros. Television, Amazon Studios, Blumhouse, ABC, CBS and the CW. Additionally, our branded content studio, Narratively Creative, creates high-quality video, animation, podcasts and writing for leading brands, agencies and publishers; and Narratively Podcasts develops and produces ultra-engaging audio for Narratively’s own distribution and with the top platforms.
