MedTech Boston is hiring two contributing writers. If you have a passion for changing the healthcare industry, experience writing for a science-based publication and an interest in innovation, we want to hear from you.
What you’ll do: As a MedTech Boston contributing writer, you’ll submit several story pitches to the Managing Editor every Monday. You’ll then research and write two posts per week for the site in one of the following categories:
Who you are: You must be organized and timely with several years of writing experience (internships and school newspapers count). A science background and a knowledge of web writing on deadline are also required, and we hope you live in the Boston area (most of our events are here). We also want to work with people who are excited about MedTech Boston’s mission, clued into the Boston startup scene and curious about new trends in healthcare.
Don’t have time to write two pieces per week? MedTech Boston is always accepting pitches for stories you find interesting. If you have an idea, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your resume and a published writing sample. We respond to every email we receive. We don’t pay for those kind of stories – MedTech Boston is still a young publication – but we hope the publicity, connections and free entrance to events are worth it.
If you’re interested in joining our start-up as a contributing writer, please email email@example.com by midnight on Sunday, August 3 with your resume and two published writing samples. We’ll pay you $250 per month for 10-20 hours of work – it’s not much but we hope it’s better than nothing, and there’s room for big time growth at our publication.
Help us change the healthcare industry one story at a time.
