MNN combines unconventional original content alongside breaking environmental news from around the Web. We cover a wide range of issues, from wilderness issues to sustainable living. If the topic is of interest to people who love the environment, chances are we write about it — and you can, too.

We want reporters, photographers and videographers with the right combination of talent, interest and commitment. We want a wide range of people — students, professionals and beyond. Our system gives correspondents flexibility in scheduling because all of the work is done remotely.

What will I do?

MNN local bloggers, photographers and videographers are vital to our operation. They work (virtually) alongside the MNN team as they write stories, share local environmental news and insights and produce YouTube clips or photo galleries. In addition, each correspondent has his own page on MNN, allowing him (or her) to discuss the most interesting environmental stories of the day.

This experience can be a good fit for students or professionals in journalism, environmental studies or architecture, and it can also work for writers who want a resume-building experience that might lead to a job in new or old media.

The particulars

• We accept applications for our contributers on a rolling basis.
