Cult of Americana (COA) is seeking writers to write about their passions, interesting life experiences, topical issues, and perspective pieces with a slant towards what role all of the above has in composing the new ‘American Dream’.
Preferred candidate would’ve come of age at some point in the past 15 years (preferred current age 24-45). Our pieces are thought-provoking, insightful, and offer a noteworthy perspective that can’t be portrayed unless you’ve really lived it.
CONTENT: COA pieces must be composed in a way that doesn’t nakedly-advocate for a political party or policy position. You can make a case for an issue, but you cannot ‘point fingers’ or antagonize prospective readers. That said, sensitive or controversial topics are allowed and encouraged. You’ve just got to make your case and let the reader decide.
COMPENSATION: We pay per piece. Freelance contributors get paid at a single article rate; staff writers receive a higher stipend. We also pay to promote our writers’ work through our social media channels.
