The New York Times is looking for “at least one ambitious traveler” to be their Writer-at-Large and visit 32 places in 2018.
We are seeking a correspondent who, over the course of 2018, will go to every destination on our list and tell us the story of each place and the story of life on the road. The ideal candidate is a permanent student of life and astute documentarian of the world. This person should have a well-worn passport, the ability to parachute into a place and distill its essence and to render a compelling tale with words and images.
To be considered you need to be:
Fluent in English and social media (other languages useful but not essential).
Have quite a bit of experience of travelling already (“several destinations”)
Have written about it on social media
Have prior experience at a magazine, publishing company, newspaper, digital publication, film or other media organization.
Able to commit to a full year.
Is this you? Dream for a moment…and then think about how you could do it, why you could do it and jump in! Good luck.

The deadline for applications is Tuesday, Oct. 31 2017.
