FAIR Seeks Columnists

The national media watch group FAIR is looking for two strong writers with distinctive voices to write regular bimonthly columns for our magazine Extra! and for our website. One column would be on issues relating primarily to media and gender; the other column would primarily concern media and race.

We’re seeking well-documented, fact-based media criticism, focusing on but not necessarily limited to U.S. corporate news coverage. An understanding of the ways that racism, sexism and class bias interact in media is a must. Ability to promote one’s work via social media a plus.

Yearly pay for each column will be $2,400. Women, people of color, LGBT people and people with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply. Please send cover letter, clips and sample column ideas to Jim Naureckas and Julie Hollar at writer@fair.org by November 22.
