The Writer/Editor tells stories about the work The Nature Conservancy in Washington and its partners are doing to create a thriving future for people and nature. The Writer/Editor must bring a strong equity lens and create asset- and values-based story packages that may include blog posts, emails, social media, newsletters, talking points and communication pieces for other channels. This position works closely with our conservation staff, philanthropy team and government relations team to create compelling content that builds support and inspires action.
WE’RE LOOKING FOR YOU
We are looking for a storyteller who knows how to write, edit, and create content that will move hearts and minds and ultimately make a difference in our world. We aspire to center our work around equity, values, and asset-based communication as we work toward a world where nature and all people thrive.
As a writer and editor for the Washington marketing team, you will have the opportunity to research, write, edit, and publish the stories we tell and center a variety of voices as we share the work that TNC and our partners are doing here and around the world.
In a typical week, your work will involve managing and advancing multiple projects, such as: identifying and following leads for writing opportunities, conducting interviews, writing content, editing written work of other staff and/or freelance contributors, and publishing content on our blog. Writing and editing work will primarily focus on blogs and articles, with newsletters, emails, fact sheets, presentations, etc. also included. You will have abundant opportunities throughout the year to cover a broad variety of topics and areas of our work. Frequent and close collaboration with colleagues will be the norm.
We value lived experience and welcome applicants that have obtained knowledge and skills beyond traditional credentials. When it comes to our values and aspiration of centering our work around equity—racial and environmental, especially—and asset-based communications, we are very much on a learning journey. We haven’t figured a lot of it out just yet, but we know where we want to go (for example, see the Washington Equity Statement). We’re looking for those who will be active, supportive participants in that journey.
