Antenna International, one of the world’s leading providers of audio and multimedia tours as well as smart phone apps for some of the highest profile museums, exhibitions and historical sites is looking for US based freelance writers.
During a project, a writer works with the Antenna creative team to create audio scripts and other forms of written content that interpret visitors’ experience of a museum or other cultural site in engaging, lively and sometimes unexpected ways. The creative process draws on research materials provided by our clients, as well as interviews with their representatives and nominated experts.
In addition to working with Antenna’s creative team, writers are also expected to have some interaction with clients – attending meetings in person or by phone at the beginning of a project; conducting interviews (in person or by phone) with experts designated by our clients. Writers may sometimes be asked to travel onsite, either at the project outset to gather information, or towards the end of the project, to assist in checking the audio or multimedia program (expenses are covered in such cases).
What kind of person are we looking for?
Writers with a passion for art and culture and an ability to express it in writing in a vivid, engaging and accessible way. Applicants should be flexible with regard both to creative input from the rest of the team and clients, and to a project’s extensive editing process; applicants must also be able to exercise discretion and diplomacy at all times in dealing with clients and their materials.
A museum/cultural/heritage site background is an advantage, although not essential. Applicants must have proven experience in writing – preferably in an area related to our activities, and/or in a field that interprets material for a wide, non-specialist audience that can include adults and/or children.
Applicants must be eligible to work in the US.
To apply, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and outline why you’re interested in working with us. Please also attach your resume and one or more samples of your writing.
