Cleveland-Area Freelancers

Posted: 9/6/2018
Description of Position:

We are partnering with a few memory care communities in the Cleveland area, and we are looking for some strong journalists or other writers in the area who would be able to write the residents’ stories.

This is a flexible freelance gig. We pay $150 per story, which run about 500 - 700 words and often take a few hours to write.

We have an event coming up next week on Thursday Sept 13 in Westlake at 5 p.m. where writers can do face-to-face interviews with residents and family members. We are also planning events in early October in Richmond Heights and Akron. We are looking for writers to attend these events.

If you’re interested and want to learn more, please contact: Michael Chandler at 

More about MemoryWell:

grew out of our founder Jay Newton-Small's experience with her father, who was living with Alzheimer's disease. When Jay moved him into a senior living community, she was asked to fill out a long, generic questionnaire about his life. This made no sense to her: who would remember pages of hand-written data points for 150+ residents? Instead, as a longtime journalist she wrote his story for his caregivers and it transformed his life. The stories we create are available on our digital platform for families to share and add to, and they can also be printed out to make for easy offline use.
