Freelance Writers

Are you a talented freelance writer with a long list of story ideas you are eager to see published?

Richmond magazine is looking for new writers with fresh ideas and strong voices who have a working knowledge of AP Style and are familiar with Richmond magazine’s content and format.

You’ll need to know the basics of news writing, but you should be comfortable with alternative storytelling methods and first-person writing, too. We’re looking for talented writers with all kinds of expertise, from generalists and news hounds to subject-matter experts with the inside scoop on Richmond’s food, arts, entertainment, shopping and health scenes. We want writers who can look beyond the press release to get to the real story, bringing diverse populations and unexpected voices into their sourcing and writing. Whether you can turn around a quick but informative story for the web or take the time to dive deeply into a piece for our print edition, we want to hear from you.

Send your three best clips and three story ideas to editor [at] richmag [dot] com.
