Freelance writing opportunity for student journalists…and they pay!

I wanted to reach out to you about a potential opportunity for journalism
students to contribute to Student Health 101, the online health and wellness

Student Health 101 is primarily a student-written publication, as a way to
help students better manage the pressures they’re under, from managing
stress to money to eating well at university and much more. Currently,
Student Health 101 is published each month to over 1,000,000 students in
Canada and the United States, at 350 different colleges and universities.

In case you haven’t seen Student Health 101 before, you can see an example
online at

We’re currently looking for freelance student journalists and authors to
write features and shorts on health issues that are of concern to students.
Mainly, we’re looking for writers with excellent reporting skills who can
work under a deadline. Writers are hired on a freelance basis and paid a fee
per article, based on article length and difficulty of the subject matter.
Feature stories are 1,250 to 1,500 words, while short features are 500 to
600 words.

We normally request that students submit a resume and at least two writing samples to be considered for an assignment for Student Health 101.
