Job Description

Do you want to gain professional writing skills and have your named work viewed by thousands? Do you have a passion for great literature or fine art or classical or contemporary music or history or archaeology or something else in the humanities? Do you love to learn about other cultures, their cuisine, customs and language? Do you want to join a vibrant community of writers? Then write for us!

The Cultural Me helps our subscribers learn about the arts and culture the same way they would learn a new language. We are a tech company and are developing artificial intelligence-assisted learning.

We are looking for someone to research and write micro-articles (up to 275 words) on selected subjects, for example, a piece on Tolstoy, or Early Renaissance to Contemporary Art, or Latin American magic realism to Postcolonial Literature, or Sri Lankan culture, or Beethoven, or Film... You will also be involved in editing contributions from other writers.

If you have never written professionally before then don't worry: all we ask for is a Bachelor's Degree in the Arts, Humanities or Social Sciences. We are also happy to consider you if you have alternative qualifications — provided you can demonstrate specialist subject matter knowledge in one or more areas in the arts and culture (and you love reading). The articles we produce (unlike popular media) are to the best academic standards. The ideal person, therefore, should enjoy writing articles that are well researched yet written in an accessible format suitable for the public at large.

This is a great opportunity for someone with a passion for the arts and culture to be involved in an exciting project and to join a community on a worthy mission.

We help you with

  • Gaining professional writing skills through detailed editorial feedback
  • Developing your intellectual grasp of subjects in the arts and culture
  • Publication and promotion of your work via social media and arts networks
  • Providing a link to your portfolio of writing to share

Please email Sara by clicking on apply and writing a short cover note explaining what you like about the role.
