Job: Freelance Writing (Meydan TV)

Deadline for Applications: Ongoing

Please see email from Josef Gassmann below:

“My name is Josef Gassmann. I’m the English language editor for an Azerbaijani, on-line newspaper, Meydan TV.

Our site can be found here: www.meydan.tv/en/site

Meydan TV is a non-profit online multimedia platform, launched in 2013 through Azerbaijan’s first successful crowd-funding initiative. As one of the last surviving sources of independent reporting on Azerbaijan, Meydan TV fills a major gap in mainstream reporting from Azerbaijan, where media is largely state controlled and restrictions on freedom of expression and association continue to escalate.

As such, we’re always looking to hire freelancers interested in writing unique content for our page.

Would you mind forwarding our contact and site information to your students and alumni? Should any of them be interested in getting in touch or working with us, they can find our Facebook page: @meydantvenglish, or they can get in touch directly with me at: josef.gassmann23@gmail.com. Please feel free to forward my contact information to anyone else you might think interested, including staff.

We are interested in articles pertaining not only to Azerbaijan, but also to economic, political and cultural issues in the regions of the Caucasus, Iran, Turkey, Russia and Central Asia.”
