HuffPost Is Looking For Retirement-Focused Freelance Writers

HuffPost is looking for freelancers to cover retirement and retirement-related lifestyle issues. We’re looking for short stories and listicles, but we’ll also commission reported features that contain personal anecdotes, expert opinion and unique angles. Rates are competitive. 

Why? At a time when people are living and working longer — retirement planning is often top of mind. HuffPost covers the latest news around aging and offering tips for being physically, emotionally and financially fit after age 50. Consider it a place for the boomer audience to read about how to lead a healthy, full life.

What we’re looking for:

Finances, e.g.: What you should be saving now to have a fulfilling retirement; How to smartly downsize your home; Expenses to ditch to prepare for retirement;

Empty-nesting, e.g.: TK ideas for remodeling the kids’ rooms; TK things psychologists/teachers didn’t expect when their kids left the house;

Health, wellness and beauty, e.g.: TK things to eat that can help you age gracefully; TK beauty products to use now so you age gracefully; What your hands say about you;

Travel, e.g.: TK best cities to visit when you’re older; TK trips to save for; TK trips you’ll want to take once you retire; the best places to go with a big, multi-generation family; tips for booking a big trip with a big family; TK best trips to take solo

Retiring abroad, e.g.: How to do it, where to do it, how to save for it, etc. 

What we’re not looking for:

Anything that diminishes the aging process, shames readers or is science-skeptical. No product reviews or advanced fitness coverage ― our readers are primarily casual gym-goers, not triathletes. Trends should be national or at least tied to national themes. 

If you’d like to pitch your idea, please use this form and we will do our best to get back to you.
