Are you a good writer with solid capabilities in journalism, environmental issues, and sustainable transportation?
If so, HybridCars.com is growing and in need of U.S.-based contract freelance writers in the East & West Coast and Midwest areas to post daily advanced-tech automotive news briefs.
Opportunities for other assignments for the right person could follow, but for now we’re open to experienced or inexperienced candidates as long as you are able to add quality, be teachable, fit our editorial voice, and style.
Knowledge of AP style is a plus, as are a degree in Journalism, English, or related fields. Engineers or others with mechanical and technological aptitude who can write according to style and journalistic protocols would also be considered.
Preferred are writers who’ve been published and can demonstrate an unbiased understanding of advanced automotive technology, familiarity with the car business and all the nuances and interplay of the industry.
HybridCars.com is not a fan site, or an advocacy group. It is a neutral online consumer oriented magazine that covers the whole alternative-energy field.
Typically, this includes (our namesake) hybrids, as well as plug-in hybrids, battery electric cars, fuel cell vehicles, diesel vehicles, natural gas power and other technologies.
Topics we cover include new car news, technology developments, issues surrounding these and more.
While insightful and informed analysis may be OK, writers will need to put aside their personal opinions and stay objective while engaging readers with tightly written copy – typically 200-500 words. Pay is per published piece and is entry level for this position. We’re looking for daily Monday to Friday contributions of 2-4 stories per day.
