Calling Young South African Writers, Journalists And Leaders: Tell Your Story And Make A Difference

We are looking for young writers, journalists, leaders and storytellers in South Africa to join in our effort to change the way news and information is told all around the world.

RISE NEWS is a fast growing and highly impactful millennial focused news organization that has brought together over 1,000 of the most talented young people from all around the world. And we are just getting started.

Our next big push is going to be in South Africa, where our message is resonating and helping us grow into something truly special.

Our mission is a simple but revolutionary one: we want to create an outlet which tells the stories that mainstream media too often miss, while building a platform that can serve as a place for debate and discussion.

We believe in storytelling and that the pursuit of truth should be the foremost goal for those in public life.

We also deeply believe in the power of our generation (no matter where we physically are on this planet) and that we need a vibrant free press in all corners of the Earth.

You can have real impact here.

In the process, you will learn more about the power of story-telling while gaining valuable work experience in a fun team atmosphere.

As one of the most diverse and vibrant countries on Earth, South Africa is perfectly positioned to be a leading force for our mission of a more democratized news industry.

While we lean towards news and originally reported journalism pieces, we also publish opinion pieces, policy proposals, first person narratives and fiction short stories as well.

You don’t need any prior journalism experience to participate. We encourage any ambitious and talented young person (and those young at heart) to reach out to us.

You will work with our in country editor and our team back in the United States as well.

If you are interested then please fill out this form:

If you have any questions, feel free to email us at [email protected].
