We are always looking for freelance writers who have deep
experience covering water issues in California and across the
Colorado River Basin. We also need freelance copy editors
familiar with AP style on a regular basis.
We produce a variety of news and informative publications. Our
flagship publication, Western
Water, is a monthly online news magazine that
features in-depth, notebook and spotlight items as well as
Q&As. Our articles explore the science, policy and
debates centered around drought, groundwater,
sustainability, water access and affordability, climate change
and endangered species involving key sources of supply such as
the Colorado River, the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and more.
We also produce a series of Layperson’s Guides on key water
topics and are continually updating them. You can learn more
about us, our history and our mission here.
If you’d like to freelance for us, please send
an email to Doug Beeman, our news and publications
director, along with a resume and a few writing samples involving
water supply or quality.
