The Mary Sue Is Hiring a Staff Writer!

The Mary Sue is searching for a staff writer to join our team! We’re looking for a journalist/blogger who gets our intersectional feminist perspective and has significant knowledge of, and passion for, pop culture, politics, online culture, The Discourse™, fandom, weird internet memes, and more! You should especially be plugged into the 24/7 news cycle. Do you have fifteen notifications pop onto your phone from a variety of sources whenever a story breaks? We want to hear from you.

So, what are the job expectations? Your primary focus will be covering news and cultural trends in all of the areas mentioned above and more, with an emphasis on quickly and informatively keeping our readers up to date on what’s going on in the world around them, whether it’s a political fiasco or the spontaneous combustion of a social media network.

You’ll work with our editing staff to cover stories as assigned on a day-to-day basis, as well as pitch your own story ideas. We particularly want to hear from candidates who are comfortable with breaking news, writing incisive takes, working independently, and who have an instinctive barometer for what’s newsworthy. The ideal candidate will be able to find the aspects of any story that everyone will be (or should be!) discussing in the daily news cycle and drive the conversation forward with their unique analysis.

The hiring salary range is in the mid $40,000s.

What are we looking for in a prospective staff writer?

  • Someone who’s proud to be called a feminist and a geek.
  • A knack for finding unique, insightful angles on news stories and public discourse.
  • The ability to write quickly and accurately.
  • Someone eager to learn and incorporate feedback to build their writing skills.
  • Familiarity with WordPress/blogging platforms and social media channels. (Mostly Facebook and Twitter, but Tumblr, TikTok, Instagram, and more are great, too!)
  • A multitasker who can consume a large amount of information in a short time.

What do we want in your application sent to [email protected]?

  • The subject line of your email must read: “TMS Staff Writer 2022.”
  • A brief cover letter as the BODY of your email.
  • Your resume/CV (as an attachment) or LinkedIn profile (choose one).
  • At least two links to samples of your writing.
  • Links to your personal website/portfolio/blog, podcasts/videos, and/or any public social media accounts you would like to share.
