Note: I don’t know anything about these positions other than what I post. I weed out the seedy looking ones, but it is your job to be diligent when applying. Also, please don’t message me with questions about the postings. If a link doesn’t work the posting has probably been taken down because the gig has been filled. If you have a gig for freelance writers that pays at least $50 a peice or over $25 an hour, please contact me and I will include your gig in next week’s post.

To be considered, please submit one or more pitches for a video essay script on one of the subjects listed above, as well as a resume, brief cover letter and a writing sample that shows your ability to write analytically on film and TV (this can be a sample elaborating on one of your pitches, or an existing sample of past writing). We encourage you to watch the videos on our YouTube channel to get a sense of our voice before you submit your sample and pitch. **Please email applications to: rather than submitting them through MediaBistro.
