Freelance Writer Wanted!


RSPCA NSW is searching for an outstanding freelance writer/editor to contribute to our animal publications, Animals and Animania as well as to provide content to our Annual Report.

These three publications focus on the work we do but they are targeted to very different audiences. Animals is our members’ magazine. With a distribution of over 8000 copies, three times a year, it is pitched at RSPCA annual and life members who have a deep interest in animals and the work of the organisation.

Animania is our kids’ publication. A quarterly national publication, it is distributed to junior members of the RSPCA in six states. This colourful A5 magazine is aimed at 5 - 11 year olds and is packed with fun facts, competitions, puzzles and animal information.

Our Annual Report is distributed to our members, major donors and selected corporate supporters. It is a summary of our accomplishments over the year and includes our audited financial report.

The freelance writer/editor will not be required to work from RSPCA offices but will be required to attend flat plan and story meetings, conduct interviews and attend sites as required for publication purposes. This person will also help coordinate photo shoots. Working with a freelance designer, this person will assist in putting the publications together to be approved by RSPCA NSW.

This opportunity would suit someone with a strong interest in animal welfare who can adapt their writing style to suit two very different demographics. You should be an exceptional writer with strong editorial and layout skills. We are looking for someone who creates stories that are engaging, error free and enrol the reader in our work.

We estimate that the work requires a one to two day commitment per week – depending on how fast you write. The fee basis will be by publication.

• Animals – A4 publication 48 pages plus cover X 3 issues

• Animania – A5 publication 50 pages plus cover X 4 issues.

• Annual Report – A4 publication 56 plus cover – includes 14 page financial report X 1 issue

Interested parties should send a summary of your experience and two examples of your work to publications@rspcansw.org.au
