Freelance Writers Wanted At HybridCars.com

Are you a good writer with aptitude and interest in automotive journalism, environmental issues, and sustainable transportation?

If so, and you also have a grasp of technological details, maybe we should talk. This website is growing and in need of a couple U.S. based freelance writers to post daily alternative-energy transportation focused news briefs.

Opportunities for higher-paying assignments could follow, but for now this is a ground-floor opportunity open to experienced or inexperienced writers as long as you can add quality, fit our editorial voice, and style.

Knowledge of AP Style is a plus, as are a degree in Journalism, English, or related fields. Engineers who can write according to style and be mindful of journalistic protocols would also be considered.

Preferred are writers who’ve been published and can demonstrate an unbiased understanding of advanced automotive technology, familiarity with the car business and all the nuances and interplay of the industry.

HybridCars.com is not a fan site, or an advocacy group. It is a neutral online consumer-oriented magazine that covers the whole alternative-energy field. Typically, this includes (our namesake) hybrids, as well as plug-in hybrids, battery electric cars, fuel cell vehicles, diesel vehicles, natural gas power and other automotive technologies.

Topics we cover include new car news, technology developments, issues surrounding these and more.

Writers will need to put aside their personal opinions and stay objective while engaging readers with tightly written copy – typically 150-400 words, though more or less is OK as appropriate. Pay is per published piece and is entry level for this position. We’re looking for daily Monday to Friday contributions of 1-3 stories per day. Applicants need to be reliable, consistent, and be able to be teachable as necessary.
