High School Illustrated
DescriptionHigh School Illustrated was founded in Orange County, Calif. in 2011. We believed that high school news is neglected by media — and we wanted to do something about it. After all, what is more central to the community than a high school?
We are rapidly expanding to other locations throughout the United States and are seeking writers. Writers may live anywhere, as long as you are able to conduct phone interviews. Stories are generally sports related, but you may be asked to cover any person, event, or topic which would be interesting to the high school community.
Writers will be payed $10 per article. The real benefit is getting magazine and social media experience and exposure. There is no designated length for the internship/featured writer program. We just ask for consistency and some commitment. As a result, we will be able to offer future incentives, such as regularly paid positions.
ResponsibilitiesWriters will be expected to complete a minimum two articles per month. Articles should be in the 350-500 word range. We also encourage feature articles, which are 500-800 words and may be included in the print publication.
More information is available upon request.
RequirementsMust have some experience with writing articles. Must have an interest in sports. Must be willing to seek out story ideas — even though you may not live in the community.
We prefer candidates with...
- College journalism experience
- Ability to work in a virtual newsroom environment

- Social media presence
