Young Journalist Fellowship
Reason’s Young Journalist Fellowship is an opportunity for early-career and aspiring journalists to develop their skills and gain experience while exploring the ideas of free minds and free markets through the premiere outlet for liberty-focused journalism.
Fellowships are offered in a variety of full-time year-long positions, in both our Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. offices, as well as potential telecommuting arrangements. Examples of fellowship roles include: staff editor; reporter; and visual content expert.
Candidates apply for the fellowship roles just as they would any full time position, and start and end dates are determined for each individual role depending on needs and availability. Reason is currently accepting applications for the following roles, see details below:
Reason.com, the leading libertarian news and commentary website with over 3 million monthly visits, is looking for editorial design artists to create compelling visual content for our site.
The ideal candidate is passionate about free minds and free markets, is a news junkie who stays constantly abreast of issues trending on social media, has excellent graphic design and layout skills, and has a vision for how to reach new audiences by adding visual content to Reason. Job location is negotiable, but candidates who can work from our Los Angeles or Washington, D.C. offices are preferred.
To apply, please submit the following elements as a single pdf or Word file to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are rolling until the position is filled.
- A sample idea (or ideas) of visual content to accompany or supplement any article currently on Reason.com. Content could include photographs, infographics, charts, graphs, gifs, etc. Show us what you can do.

Reason.com, the leading libertarian news and commentary website with over 3 million monthly visits, is looking for a libertarian political junkie to cover Capitol Hill and beyond.
The reporter would be responsible for covering the actions and words of “Liberty Movement” politicians on Capitol Hill, and important political news of the day, especially issues of particular interest to libertarians, such as Obamacare, federal spending, debt, war, civil liberties, criminal justice reform, the drug war, elections, etc.
The ideal candidate is a voracious consumer of political and policy news, and determined to be the first to break important stories.
The reporter will be expected to file regular blog posts and columns. Success will be measured by quality/quantity of output and traffic, external impact, and other metrics. The reporter will report to, and be edited by, Matt Welch and work out of Reason’s Washington D.C. office. Emphasis will be on breaking news and contributing timely reporting more than opinion-slinging and political prescriptions.
To apply, send cover letter, resume and up to five published clips in a single pdf or Word file to email@example.com. Applications are rolling and will be accepted until the position is filled.
