Politics Writer I

Are you the next Eric Alterman, Katrina vanden Hueval, Ezra Klein, or George Packer?

The Political Writer 1 Intern will approach some content from a politically left leaning perspective and other content from an independent non-bias perspective that topically relates to Modern Treatise.

The candidate should be adept at understanding political philosophies rather than political talking points.

The candidate must be able to look at political subject matters from multiple perspectives.

The candidate must be adept at relying on fact based evidence rather than political wish-thinking

 

Responsibilities Include:

  • Write a weekly column from the left-of-center perspective. 
  • Write a bi-weekly column focused on domestic policy from a non-bias perspective.
  • Write regular content focused on locale, state or federal court topics.
  • Write regular pieces focused on global elections from a non-bias perspective.
