The Wall Street Journal seeks an experienced writer for its popular 10-Point newsletter. The right candidate will work directly with editor-in-chief Gerard Baker to distill our best scoops and stories into an engaging daily must-read for a loyal subscriber audience. We're looking for a creative self-starter who can work with minimal supervision to prepare the newsletter for early-morning publication and look for opportunities to grow its audience.
The newsletter is named "The 10-Point" after the nickname conferred by the editors of The Wall Street Journal on the lead column of the legendary "What's News" digest of top stories. Technically, "10-point" referred to the size of the typeface. The type is smaller now but the name lives on.
Applications should include a resume, cover letter and up to five published clips.
- Edit and publish the daily 10-Point newsletter
- Create a unique and habit-forming experience for 10-Point subscribers
- Develop and execute a clear editorial strategy for the 10-Point newsletter that is informed by analytics, audience insights and news judgment
- Work closely with the audience and off-platform teams to grow the 10-Point newsletter audience and find opportunities to bring our journalism to new readers via email
- Superb news judgment; a strong journalistic foundation as a reporter or editor
- At least two years of newsroom experience
- A demonstrated record of success in growing and engaging audiences via email
- An appreciation for The Wall Street Journal brand and its core coverage areas
- The ability to move projects forward in a collaborative team environment
- A strategic thinker with a passion for experimentation and a facility for data
- Strong communication and presentation skills
