Description

DESCRIPTION:

Volunteer Feature Writer

Chicago Legal Clinic’s digital marketing team is seeking a volunteer feature writer to help tell the stories of CLC clients, volunteers, and staff. The volunteer should have some background or education in a writing-intensive field such as journalism or creative writing. Current students of writing-intensive disciplines are especially encouraged to apply.

The feature writer will have the opportunity to produce features on Clinic clients, staff, volunteers, offices, programs, and projects. The content will be published on the Clinic’s digital media channels under the volunteer’s byline.

The volunteer should aim to produce one feature every two weeks, with an estimated commitment of 5-10 hours per week. The volunteer will report to the Digital Marketing Director. The volunteer may work mostly remotely, but must be based in Chicago in case the need arises to gather photos or conduct in-person interviews at Clinic locations.
