Are you fascinated by unique seasonal holidays and cultural customs? Do you have a knack for knowing what others will find interesting, witty, and shareable? Can you turn ideas into high-quality prose in a matter of minutes, not hours? Are you a scrappy, ambitious self-starter who's eager to create content that converts?
If so, you could make a great Freelance Copywriter. We have an amazing opportunity for the right type of person to flex a more humorous style while still keeping the copy concise and easy-to-read.
As a contract copywriter, you'll be an important member of our creative team. You'll write content for National Today, one of our most exciting projects yet, creating original content around holidays today that will reach and impact a global audience.

We're adding hundreds of fun and interesting holidays to our site, not only from the U.S. but from countries around the world. We delight in being sly, sarcastic, funny, and sweet (with a bit of an edgy wink to the audience) so that our audiences actually look forward to reading our site every morning.
