US-UK Review is looking for writers who can produce articles and reviews displaying an obvious knowledge, articulacy and occasional humour within their own subjects and writing fields. The new website (us-ukreview.com) launches this April and is now accepting applications from all writers regardless of experience or previous publishing success.
The US recruitment phase will run alongside our UK recruitment in order to bring together a large pool of writers from both sides of the Atlantic to write and review a comprehensive range of subjects ranging from culture, lifestyle, The Arts & showbiz.
You don’t need to be an academic or be gifted in literary brilliance, but what we’re NOT looking for is writers in the style of, for example, local newspapers, tabloids, music mags, reportage, instructional or short pieces etc.
What we are looking for in applicants is the ability to write in a reasonably mature but engaging style within their field of knowledge. Our editorial stance is open to all styles ranging from chatty, conversational, quirky, irreverent and humorous to serious and factual. Experienced editors are also welcome to apply.
Writers will be hired on a freelance basis and can expect fees up to $120 for a single article/review depending on the assignment/other factors, whilst smaller pieces will pay a commensurately lower figure.
Please send your application (something you’ve previously written, along with your resume’) by email and also post a second hard copy as a back-up. In subject window, please put : “your name/Application” then E-Mail to:[email protected] and also post hard copy to ; US-UK Review, USA Editorial, 23 Castalia Square, London, E14 3NG, United Kingdom. PLEASE PUT AN “AIRMAIL” STICKER ON YOUR ENVELOPE TO ENSURE QUICK DELIVERY. Deadline March 9th.
