Are you a proud Democrat looking for a challenging volunteer opportunity? Do you enjoy writing and sharing your opinion on politics? Then we want you to join our team!
All Things Democrat (ATD) has been a part of the online Democratic community since 2006. Over the years, we’ve been fortunate to have worked with many talented writers. Many of them have moved-on to paid writing positions. If you intend to have a career in politics, journalism, or working for an issues-based organization of interest to lefties, having experience writing for ATD will make your resume stand-out.
And yes, you can work for a Democratic campaign or the Democratic Party while you are a volunteer at All Things Democrat (see FEC regulations summary on blogging).
These are volunteer positions that you can work around your schedule from home, school, or anywhere there’s an internet connection. We are seeking reliable, dedicated volunteers who can start immediately and work continuously through the November election. Serious inquiries, only.
Writers – Election Reports
We have 4 writing positions for Democrats to report on Congressional and Gubernatorial races for the November, 2014 election:
- 1 position covering western states
- 2 positions covering central states
- 1 position covering eastern states
Writers do not necessarily need to live in the assigned region since information collected will be found primarily online.
Writers will collect campaign updates which include recent news and events, rallies, endorsements, polls, fundraising and more. Blogging experience is not necessary but must have some writing experience. Writers may be in contact with campaign staffers (by email or phone) and will represent All Things Democrat, so the position requires professionalism and excellent interpersonal skills. Seeking dedicated, self-motivated individuals with good time management skills and the ability to meet deadlines. Writers will use their own equipment (computer and phone) to perform duties; work from home. Estimated time commitment: 3-6 hours per week.
Writers – Current Political News and Issues
Seeking strong, dedicated, self-motivated Democrats to strengthen our writing team. Must have an above-average interest in politics and enjoy sharing opinion and analysis of the issues with your fellow Dems. This position requires previous experience writing for blogs, online magazines, newspapers or other relevant experience or relevant educational background. Writers will post a minimum of one, unique post per week (no cross-posting), preferably more. Volunteers will use their own equipment (computer and phone) to perform duties, working from home with all research done online, by email, or by phone.
Politics is a contact sport. We write partisan posts that are in support of Democrats and in fierce opposition to our political opponents. The volunteer positions we offer are only for Democrats interested in taking-on the radical right in the political war of words.
We already have several talented volunteers, but we’re looking for more to add to the team. So, are you ready to help us support Democrats?
