About

Redemptive Work is looking for Newsletter Writers to assist in our work with displaced, disabled, formerly incarcerated, or other socially outcast persons to create sustainable living situations. Our clients need assistance accessing local resources and services, personal goal setting, employment search, and more.

What does a Newsletter Writer do?

A Newsletter Writer is the voice of the organization. Our constituents need to know what we are doing and the newsletter is one channel we use to keep people informed. We need writers to translate Project Manager notes and client narratives into success stories, failure stories, and truth-telling stories of life for the displaced and unemployable. These newsletters will be used in fundraising, friend-raising, brand building and other venues to raise awareness of the plight of those trapped in poverty by unjust social structures.

They will also be responsible for helping to shape the overall story and express client dialogue in moving and meaningful ways. It’s important for the Newsletter Writer to understand the tone and culture of the organization, as they’ll be writing a lot of the small touches that could make or break the experience for the reader. As a job, it’s a real labor of love that combines a dedication to writing and a passion for equality and justice.

For this role, you will need to:

  • Have a creative and intelligent writing style
  • Be able to create text and dialogue that tells RW's story
  • Understand what makes human services appealing to different audiences
  • Possess excellent imagination and creativity
  • Have excellent communication and presentation skills

We are looking for our Newsletter Writers to produce one newsletter per month, for dissemination through our email platform. We anticipate that this will require 1-3 hours a week commitment.

This role is ideal for professionals in the field wishing to volunteer and students majoring in journalism, English, communications, or any individual interested in narrative or literature.
