Are you a writer, editor, or Chinese-to-English translator? Do you have insightful stories to tell about China? The World of Chinese is looking for bright, knowledgeable freelancers, with relevant experience and qualifications, to contribute to our bi-monthly print magazine and website. We cover a wide variety of subjects, ranging from food to film, law, literature, technology, and travel, with regular columns and feature-length articles.
The ideal freelance candidates should be experienced in their field, have lived, worked, or traveled in China, and/or the Chinese diaspora; capable of working in English at a native level; and have a deep understanding of their subject and a lively, engaging style. Translators should have experience translating fiction, journalism, and narrative non-fiction. 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. Freelancers may work remotely, though we encourage candidates already based in China to apply.
To apply, please send a CV and a brief cover letter, stating why you’d like to work for The World of Chinese, along with at least two previous samples of work (ideally published), and (for writing candidates) three story pitches of 50 to 150 words to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Freelancer.”
