Politics Newsletter Writer

The New York Times - New York, NY (30+ days ago)4.0


The Politics desk is seeking an energetic reporter and analytical thinker to share insights, creativity, scoops both juicy and conceptual, and a signature voice as the writer of our revamped politics newsletter.

The position requires a sharp and knowing political mind, but also one that can frame ideas and observations in an engaging, smart, even fun way for general readers and the curious while also satisfying the die-hards.

We’re looking for a unique way into a crowded political newsletter marketplace, so the writer will be someone who loves experimenting with form and content, who acts as a host and convener of conversation some days; an analyst other days; and a storyteller, and a tip sheet writer, and so on. The writer will also be interacting with readers and sharing observations with them in ways beyond the newsletter. In other words, versatility and openness to fresh approaches to political journalism are key.

This is a five-day-a-week newsletter that involves generating original content under daily deadlines. Reporting and writing experience with national politics and campaigns is preferred. Past newsletter work is not required, but interest and enthusiasm in the form is important.

Interested candidates can apply in Workday. You can also contact Patrick Healy, the Politics editor.

This is a Guild position.
