Are you a published writer with a strong and abiding interest in green cars, especially those that plug in?

Do you have experience writing assigned news stories on deadline?

Are you looking for a new challenge?

If so, Green Car Reports would like to talk to you. The site is now seeking one or two contract writers to produce regular daily news stories of 300 to 500 words.

General news-writing experience is somewhat more important than deep familiarity with car-news writing. We will only consider candidates who have some writing background, however.

The writers we want on board will be able to turn around a story assigned from notes in as little as an hour, though most assignments will come with 6 hours' notice or more.

We pay market value for production of news stories, and an average of three stories a day over several months or a year offers excellent exposure.

If you're interested in the opportunity, please e-mail editor John Voelcker (john at internetbrands dot com) with the following:

  • a resume
  • a short summary of your interest in and experience with "green car" topics, including but not limited to high fuel efficiency, car technology, hybrids, plug-in electric cars, hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles, energy generation, and government legislation.
  • links to at least three clips of the type of work we're seeking

We will acknowledge all inquiries received, but cannot consider candidates who fit the following descriptions:

  • You've never written news stories for publication before
  • You have a full-time job and can only write at specific times of day
  • You're more interested in driving or testing cars than covering news in the field
  • This would just be for a few weeks until you find something better
  • Your written English is "okay but could use work"
