Broadway Black: Call for Writers
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BroadwayBlack.com is dedicated to highlighting the achievements and successes of African-American theatre artists on and off the Broadway stage. For so long, our voices have been skimmed over inside and outside of The Great White Way. However, we know we have experiences to share that are essential. BroadwayBlack.com serves as a collective of things we all care for. It is a platform for all things Black theatre. Created for the child in all of us who looked up to the stage searching for the faces that looked like ours. Celebrating the dedication of those who hand over their life to give all they have to the stage. Shining light on those that continue our journey. Paying tribute to those who blazed the way for our story to be told, seen, and heard on The Great Way.
Broadway Black is expanding its writing staff. We are looking for talented writers to
join our team. Experience in writing for a publication is not as important as your
passion for the theatre. This is an unpaid position; however, it will give you
opportunities to expand your portfolio, be published daily on a nationally renowned
platform, and potentially interview up-and-coming and established talent in the theatre.
– Must commit to writing at least one article daily, Sunday through Thursday.
– Conduct professional interviews (in-person, over the phone or through email).
– Represent Broadway Black at theatre events, when necessary and appropriate.
– Excellent writing and proofreading skills
– Attention to detail
– Ability to think creatively and write in an engaging way
– Excel under tight deadline
– AP Writing Style
– Team Oriented
– Superb Interviewing Skills
– Knowledge of WordPress and SEO is helpful, but not required.
***Your geographic location is unimportant. However, it is imperative that you are able to adhere to strict NYC time deadlines
