In these trying times, many technology publications have unfortunately reduced their staff, and their budget for freelance writers and editors, leaving a threefold problem for the technology media industry: A plethora of really talented writers looking for work, technology publishers that are starving for content but can’t afford to buy it, and overworked editorial staffs left trying to do work they don’t have time to do. The available freelance journalists cannot afford to help these editors without a paycheck.
TechJournalists.com is a consortium of technology media professionals that has gathered to find a solution for this two-part problem.
The idea is simple:
- Tech journalists need writing work
- Publishers need content from seasoned writers
What is the Solution and how does it work?
TechJournalists.com. We are angel funded, with two cleaved goals as our mission:
One: To keep the best members of the fourth estate working and thriving, like they should be, like they need to be if we want to have the sort of society we actually want to live in.
Two: To help keep publishing a healthy, competitive environment. No magazine, newspaper, online media site, radio station, or TV station should be stuck with poor quality, or simply lacking compelling stories altogether, because they can’t afford to be able to tell it like it is.
If the media becomes distilled down to only a few players with deep enough pockets to publish, then competition disappears, and eventually so does real news and information of any kind.
With that in mind, Techjournalists.com pays the writers. Publishers and editors operate in the same way they always do when working out story assignments, receiving pitches, hammering out details with writers. The only difference is the publisher doesn’t get a bill, just the content.
Our esteemed group of technology journalists can be made available for presentations, video, webinars, trade shows, user conferences and more.
