Copywriter / Storyteller for Web

Copywriter / Storyteller for the Web

Part-time employee preferred, but a contractor/freelance role is also possible.


In this client-facing position, you will work on website projects for nonprofit clients working to make the world a better place by solving difficult challenges. Working from the Content Plan and draft copy, you’ll write engaging, storytelling-type content designed to be read on a web page. You should be a versatile writer, skilled at writing for different styles and tones of voice.

Typical deliverables include copy drafts, outlines, and final copy.



Hourly rate: $30-40/hour

Benefits: Education budget, and flexible scheduling.

Location: Virtual office. U.S. time zones preferred.

Accrued paid time off and sick leave: available for employees

Flexible work schedule: we work with you if you need to move your schedule around for family, emergencies, or just want to take a special 4-day weekend trip.

The opportunity to shape your role to your interests, and to take on significant responsibility that you likely won’t get at a larger firm.

Training and education opportunities, as we believe strongly in the importance of continued learning.
