The answer is yes: If you were lucky enough to nab the spot as the New York Times “Travel Writer-At-Large.”
The famed print publication is offering a position for an experienced travel writer (cough, underwater photojournalists) to work as a paid globetrotter for a year. The writer will follow the itinerary of the Times’ “52 Places to Go” series, visiting and documenting a different spot each week.
The qualifications for the position are fairly broad and many DPG readers probably fit the bill. The ideal candidate should meet the following requirements: Has traveled to several destinations, has documented travel in writing, is active on social media, and has worked with magazines or other forms of media.
“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,” reads the job description. We’d like to emphasize the final word.
Oh, and there’s one more requirement: You must be available for a year of paid travel. Apply here.
