DescriptionThe Typewriter is a news media start-up founded in May 2013 which aims at publishing news editorial and opinion articles which are only written from the local perspective.
We distinguish ourselves from the established media outlets because we do not believe in the purpose of foreign correspondents. There should not be a need for journalists from one country to visit another country and report back to the home audience especially when there are individuals who are perfectly capable of telling their own stories themselves. So we look for these individuals and we invite them to submit articles to The Typewriter hoping to provide our readers with a voice that is genuine and a perspective that is overlooked.
We have a community of over 200 writers from 70 countries writing about their surroundings and reporting what s actually happening on the ground. We are an accepted new source on Google News and we have been consistently invited by the United Nations in attending inter-agency youth discussion forums. As of today our viewership just surpassed 5 million worldwide.
Write to us if you want to build a work portfolio in art media communication journalism politics law business or public relations.
