Medium is expanding its editorial team. We are looking for an outstanding staff writer for Elemental, our publication focused on science-backed health & wellness.
Our staff writer should be informed & passionate about the health & wellness space, plugged in to the latest news & studies, curious about the future, & ready to investigate it all. You should be capable of covering a wide range of topics, from nutrition & fitness to neuroscience & psychedelics. You should have a roster of strong sources & a long list of story ideas. You must be ready to get your hands dirty (and have fun!) creating something new.
You know the competitive landscape of health & wellness publications, have great ideas about how to stand apart, & write stories that are well-reported, thoughtful, & make readers smarter. Medium isn't where readers will find aggregation or study of the day write-ups. Instead, we're looking for pieces that will reach & resonate with a broad audience, one that's interested in enjoying their healthiest life, & wants reliable, nuanced coverage on how to do it.
Our ideal candidate has at least four years of experience covering health & wellness as a writer. They should feel comfortable writing across a range of formats, from shorter reports to longer features, & bring great pitches to the table every single day.
