Elite Daily is currently seeking part-time writers for its Lifestyle section, available to work three to four days each week during business hours (EST).
The LIFE section encompasses a variety of lifestyle content different groups of people can relate to -- including strong and unique perspectives on college life/struggles, holiday/seasonal content, identity pieces specific to the writer that a niche group can also relate to (ex. introverts, extroverts, coffee lovers, chronically cold people, girls with short hair, extroverted introverts, quiet over-thinkers, etc.), travel content, study abroad, friendship, family, navigating life throughout your 20s, age-specific content, social media content, bucket lists, etc.
