For a few years now, I’ve been talking about wanting to publish a greater range of voices on Puttylike. Multipotentialites from different backgrounds should be able to see their experiences reflected on the site. And the ease with which one can build a life and career around multiple passions is, without question, impacted by opportunity and privilege.
Although we’ve made some small shifts toward featuring a greater diversity of voices, we haven’t done enough. And for this, I apologize.
The goal of making Puttylike more diverse and inclusive can’t keep being something we push into the future. We need to do better now.
We were planning on hiring a couple new writers with the launch of the revamped site this summer, but we’ve decided to move up that search.
A call for regular contributors
We’re looking for 1-2 writers to join the Puttylike writing team. This position pays $200 USD/month for one article per month.
Do you think your unique perspective could bring something new to Puttylike? Are you always brimming with new ideas that you want to share with our eclectic community? We are looking for writers who want to share experiences, advice and observations about how to embrace your many passions and thrive as a multipotentialite in the modern world.
- Demonstrated success with regular online or print publishing
- An established knowledge of the tone and content of Puttylike
- Great editing skills (When you submit an article, there should be very little to correct in terms of spelling and grammar.)
- Ability to gracefully handle constructive criticism and use it towards growth
As a writer at Puttylike, you’ll submit one 1000-1500 word article per month. Our managing editor will offer feedback and suggestions, if revisions are necessary. Once your article is published, you’ll be responsible for replying to comments from readers for that week. You’ll also attend our monthly team meetings (which are usually a blast!) where the Puttylike writers and editors brainstorm article ideas and themes together.
A short bio and headshot will be included at the bottom of every published article you write, and you are welcome to include a link to your website and/or social media profiles in your bio.
We are committed to building a diverse staff and strongly encourage applications from Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC).
