Remote (Africa Only)

Hiring from: Africa Only

Category: Writing


Foreign Policy is looking to expand its slate of global newsletters. We already have weekly newsletters focused on China and South Asia and are now looking for an Africa-based or Africa-focused writer who can weave together major trends and stories from across the continent in a smart and engaging weekly digest. The right candidate will have experience reporting from around Africa and be able to explain to a global audience regional trends in politics, economics, culture, and technology.

This is a part-time contract position with competitive pay.

Our ideal candidate is a freelance writer, editor, think-tanker, or commentator who will use FP’s global platform to cultivate a weekly readership spanning not only policymakers, investors, and academics but also people generally interested in African affairs and geopolitics.

Please include writing samples and a memo explaining how you would construct an edition of FP’s Africa Brief with your resume submission. Candidates are encouraged to read FP’s other regional newsletters for an example of the writing style and analysis we are looking for.

Before you apply, please check if any restrictions apply in terms of time zone or country.

This job has a geo-restriction in place: Africa Only.
