Beautiful Rising is hiring a part-time writer/researcher in Myanmar

Beautiful Rising, a toolkit of creative activism that will showcase the innovative tactics & strategies of social movements across the global south, is looking for a Myanmar-based writer/researcher to contribute to the project.

The writer/researcher will develop case studies for the toolkit over the next few months, in collaboration with the editorial team. These will be similar to case studies from Beautiful Trouble, but will focus on recent creative and innovative actions and organizing in Myanmar specifically. The goal will be to write up these actions and how they were successful so that activists both in Myanmar and in other countries across the global south can learn from them.

We encourage interested applicants to read a few case studies from our previous toolkit to get a better understanding of the format. For example:

The successful applicant will have a strong interest in social movements in Myanmar and a proven proficiency in written English. To apply, please email with a short letter (one page maximum) explaining why you want to write for Beautiful Rising, and attach a writing sample (in English).

This position pays an honorarium of USD$100 for each case study.

Please apply by Wednesday March 4.
