We’re looking for writers/journalists/curators It’s difficult days for writers and journalists of all sorts. Few companies are hiring and the jobs that do open up offer less and less money and get swallowed up in seconds. Whether you’re an industry veteran between jobs or a young aspiring journalist, it’s tough out there. Like you, we’re deeply frustrated by the unfair economics of today’s journalism industry—so we decided to launch NewsanaPlus to help fill the void. It’s not a perfect solution (yet), but we’re starting to put money into the pockets of talented news gatherers everywhere.      NewsanaPlus is looking for entrepreneurial journalists, writers, editors, curators and content specialists of all shapes and sizes. If you pass our criteria, you’ll be chosen as one of our news curators.  As a curator, you’ll regularly publish a digital newsmagazine on the subject(s) of your choice. To publish it, you simply pull together the best of what you’re already reading, writing and thinking on the topic(s) on hand. You also set a nominal monthly subscription fee; overtime your newsmag will build up a loyal following of paid subscribers.  Your compensation is based on the number of subscriptions sold—you keep half the revenue your newsmagazine generates. It’s a great way to monetize your online following while building a serious, professional brand.   Check out some of our current curators to get a better sense of the requirements and opportunity (www.....com).   About NewsanaPlus: NewsanaPlus is a news publishing platform—we make it easy for wonks and big thinkers to create, curate and sell their very own digital newsmagazines.
