Writer required for estabished blog about Russia

Writer with a good understanding of Russian politics required to write 3-5 posts per week for a well-established and respected English language blog about Russia.

This is a long-term relationship for the right person. At the moment, our maximum budget is $100 per month, but this is likely to increase over time.

Applicants must have excellent English writing skills, be able to write in a straightforward, engaging and informative style, and have a good eye for what makes an interesting story.

A good understanding of Russian politics is vital - particularly foreign policy, as this interests non-Russian readers. The writer's political views are not of major importance, although the blog is generally sceptical of Russia's current approach towards democracy, so someone who is overtly pro-Putin would probably not fit particularly well. A good knowledge of Russian-language politics blogs would be helpful, but is not vital.

3-5 posts per week would be required, most covering an important topical news story - usually the exact choice of topic will be at the writer's discretion. On average, each post will be 500-700 words, but this can vary from post to post.

This project will probably best suit those who have studied or are studying journalism and/or English language.

All applicants will need to provide two recent samples of writing about Russian politics or current affairs.
