Freelance Writers

Are you a writer? Do you have insightful stories to tell about China? The World of Chinese is looking for bright, knowledgeable freelance writers and reporters, with relevant experience and qualifications, to contribute to our bi-monthly print and ePub magazine. We cover a wide variety of subjects, from food to film, law to literature, technology to travel, with both regular columns and feature-length articles.

The ideal freelance candidates should be experienced writers who have lived, worked, or traveled in China, and/or the Chinese diaspora, and have a deep understanding of their subject and a lively, engaging style. In return, we offer a competitive word rate and the opportunity to be published in one of the oldest and best-known English language magazines in China. Writers may work remotely, though we encourage candidates already based in China to apply.

To apply, please send a resume and a brief covering letter, stating why you’d like to write for The World of Chinese, along with (ideally) two previously published articles and (all candidates) three story pitches of 50-150 words to editor@theworldofchinese.com with the subject line “Writers.”


The World of Chinese is seeking interns!

Want byline exposure online? Looking to gain experience and contacts from a magazine with over 10 years of media experience? Interested in Chinese culture and social issues?

We are seeking editorial interns for our website coverage. Applicants should be interested in current affairs, culture and media and, most importantly, have keen news sense and the ability to use creative ways to tell interesting stories.

Chinese language skills are a big asset, but if you can demonstrate a keen interest in national affairs, you may be what we’re looking for. Interns are expected to work from our office in Chaoyang district, right in the heart of Beijing.

If this sounds like an experience you’re interested in, please send your CV, a brief covering letter outlining your interest in China and the internship, and three story pitches of 50 – 150 words to jobs@theworldofchinese.com. Samples of previous writing are not essential, but helpful.
