Job StatusFreelance
Salary$25-$50 an hour

We are building a dynamic team of health/science writers to generate quality content for a growing dental industry newsroom, working: in print, online, with video, and via podcast.

We're looking for two types of reporters/writers. 1) Indiviuals with a talent for profiling story subjects and writing compelling trend articles.  2. Individuals who can spot and report cutting-edge, significant scientific studies, new technologies, and new procedures. If you can also file video or audio content, or take professional photos, great.

We foresee most articles running 500 words or less. However, we will have need for some long-form features running 1,500 to 2,500 words in length.

We are looking for individuals who:

  • Never, ever miss a deadline
  • Care passionately about accuracy and quality
  • Are creative, not just taking on assignments, but proposing story ideas
  • Are friendly. It's so much nicer to work with nice people
  • Have related experience and can go to work immediately

We often get flooded with applicants when we advertise a postion and, frankly, we don't have time to read or respond to many of those candidates who apply. So please help us.


We don't (yet) want a full résumé or writing samples. We'll ask for those later if we like what your cover letter says. In your cover letter give us a sense of your journalism experience and education; tell us what you're doing now; and maybe suggest a story idea or two for our consideration. THAT'S IT.

Address your email cover letter to:

Please (pretty please) don't send attachments of any kind. We just don't have the capacity to read them.

This is a wonderful opportunity to pick up some extra income and be part of a growing team of quality writers and editors. We are hoping to find contributors who will be with us for years to come. 

When applying, mention you saw this opening listed at
