Current seeks freelance writers

Did you know? Current takes pitches from freelance writers! Details in this link and pasted below:
https://current.org/writing-for-current/

+++++++++++++++++


Who reads Current?

Current’s primary audience is made up of people who work at public radio and television stations, networks and production companies. 

Our readers typically expect more details and context in coverage of public media than what other publications usually provide. They also expect reporting that takes them behind the scenes to explore developments that affect their work and helps them understand the thinking behind decisions that shape programs, policies and special initiatives.  

We aim to provide public media professionals with valuable insights and information that helps them and their institutions reach new levels of success.

Submissions from freelance journalists

We are particularly interested in these kinds of stories:

If you’d like to explore our website to get a sense of what we usually cover and review all the reporting shared as links above, we can grant temporary access behind our paywall.

Submit your pitch to pitch@current.org

Submissions from public media professionals

Current frequently publishes contributions from people working in public media. We are especially interested in:

We don’t pay public media professionals for submissions unless the piece requires unusual levels of research, travel and/or gathering of data. Commentaries that are too self-promotional — written to market a show or service to public media — will not be accepted. It’s okay to describe your successes, but be sure to explain the challenges, setbacks or learning process that informed your approach.  

If marketing and promotion are what you’re after, consider placing advertising in Current, including sponsored content.

Send your pitches or completed drafts to pitch@current.org.

Rewind

Rewind, our series about the history of public media, specializes in essays illuminating people, institutions and milestones in public broadcasting history that still resonate today. Many of our Rewind pieces are derived from research and writing projects undertaken by scholars in media history. Submit ideas, excerpts and completed drafts to series co-editor Mike Janssen at mike@current.org.

Job postings from @KALW’s The Spiritual Edge

Gigs available at KALW – a fab station!
-mia
++++++++++++++++
KALW's award-winning reporting project The Spiritual Edge is seeking an experienced editor(s) for three exciting projects. Email judysilber@gmail.com for more information.
The three positions are the following:
1. KALW Public Radio seeks an experienced part-time audio editor to work on an exciting project that will profile leading human rights activists around the globe.

KALW’s The Spiritual Edge is partnering with the USC Center for Religion and Civic Culture to produce 18 audio stories about “Spiritual Exemplars” around the world. Spiritual Exemplars are defined as extraordinary people working on humanitarian causes, such as poverty and human rights, who are inspired and sustained by their spiritual beliefs and practices. We imagine that these will be sound-rich, strong human-interest stories of 8-20 minute in length, produced in a variety of audio styles. Final products will air on KALW and will also be put together as a podcast series.


We just finished selection of a small group of seasoned and talented journalists and are now seeking an editor to help guide the reporting, edit scripts and mixes, and help design the overall sound and feel. The ideal candidate will have past professional editing experience, is a creative thinker, works well collaboratively and is interested in telling nuanced stories about religion that neither vilify nor exalt. International reporting or editing experience is a plus. Bay Area residence is preferred. Second best would be within the Pacific standard time zone. And if you’re really good, and are located elsewhere, we still want to hear from you.

This is a part-time position that will pay $36,000 to edit 18 in-depth feature stories over the next two-plus years, and up to 10 additional short, non-narrated, StoryCorps-like pieces. Other than reporters, with whom you’ll work from pitch to completion,  you will be working with KALW sound engineers and the executive editor of The Spiritual Edge. We anticipate a rigorous editing process, including group edits, to ensure stories of the highest quality.

KALW is a chill, fun, creative working environment where audio journalists are encouraged to experiment and grow. Women and POC encouraged to apply. Deadline to apply is Tuesday, April 23. Please include a resume and cover letter that tells us why this project appeals to you and why you think you’re qualified. Please also include clips that you’ve edited and a note about how you contributed to the final product. Send to thespiritualedgeradio@gmail.com.


2. KALW Public Radio seeks a part-time editor to become part of a team working on an eight-part broadcast/podcast series about a Native American tribe in Northern California.


The project is complex and ambitious in the ground it hopes to cover. The tribe is fighting to save its sacred sites. In addition, the series will wrestle with how the state and federal government approach water resources, land ownership, and recognition of tribes and their religious rights.

Our ideal editor has great storytelling skills and journalism chops to help guide two reporters as they do original reporting. The reporting will cover questions about the tribe’s loss of land, the reasons for its non-federally recognized status and a water district pushing policies that would irreversibly harm sacred sites. Once the reporting is done, the editor will be expected to work with the journalists on structure, script writing and sound design.

We’re looking for someone with previous professional editing experience. S/he has edited complex subjects that involve cultural sensitivity and has experience working with the Native American community. The candidate enjoys getting creative when it comes to sound. Bay Area residence is preferred. Second best would be within the Pacific standard time zone. And if you’re really good, and are located elsewhere, we still want to hear from you.


Total compensation is $24,000. We anticipate doing regular check-ins with the editor through about October, which is when we plan to start writing scripts and when the work of the editor will become more intense. Release of the podcast is planned for early 2020.

3. KALW Public Radio seeks a part-time editor to become part of a team working on a seven-part broadcast/podcast series about Muslim converts in the United States.

The series is part of KALW’s reporting project The Spiritual Edge which began airing stories in 2014. We’re launching a podcast in which we’re using religion as a tool to tell complex stories and go deep into one of the fastest growing religions in the world.

Our ideal editor has great storytelling skills and journalism chops to help guide an experienced KALW reporter and one-two freelancers as they do this original reporting. The series about Muslim Converts will center around personal stories, but also investigate trends such as the religious dilemmas faced by many American women converts, the Black Muslim movement and online radicalization.

We’re looking for someone with previous professional editing experience. S/he has edited subjects with cultural sensitivity and ideally knows something about the Muslim community. The candidate enjoys getting creative when it comes to sound. Bay Area residence is preferred. Second best would be within the Pacific standard time zone. And if you’re really good, and are located elsewhere, we still want to hear from you.

Total compensation is $24,000. We anticipate that the total length of the project will be about a year. This will include regular check-ins followed by bursts of more intense activity as stories are being scripted and edited. Release of the podcast is planned for spring of 2020.


KALW is a chill, fun, creative working environment where audio journalists are encouraged to experiment and grow. Women and POC encouraged to apply. Deadline to apply is Tuesday, April 30. Please include a resume and cover letter that tells us why this project appeals to you and why you think you’re qualified. Please also include clips that you’ve edited and a note about how you contributed to the final product.
