Word on the Street bloggers wanted!

28 Sep 2016 • 1 Comments

Word on the Street is an official yet kind of independent guide to what’s going down in Wellington. We’ve got some pretty rad writers, and we’re looking for another two to add to our collective family - an all-rounder blogger and a shopping guru.

We want someone who loves Wellington as much as we do and can share their thoughts, dreams, experiences and general tomfoolery with like-minded folk. You’ll hold the almighty responsibility of telling the story of Wellington, and we want you to do it well.


Ideally you'll be a committed shopper who enjoys browsing a store or two, trying on clothes, chatting away to shop assistants and finding hidden gems throughout the city. You'll have the hook-ups to know just where the next best shop will be cropping up, and you're keen as punch to write two blogs a month.


You love Wellington so much you can spin a yarn about practically any element of it. You'll be in the know about the best experiences to have in town, and you'll love telling everyone you can about it, with the flexibility to write one to two blogs monthly.

It’s not all rainbows and butterflies though, this is an actual, real-life, I’m-an-adult job. So if you're selected, you’re expected to write one hell of a stunning piece of artwork each fortnight (or month) until your death… or until you move on, we’re flexible. 

Who are we after?

  • You could be anyone! A photographer, vlogger, blogger… or an electrician, receptionist, or florist. Whatever your background, you'll need to be a genius at translating your experiences into entertaining and inspiring blog posts that make people want to get out there and explore!
  • As a shopping blogger you can commit to writing two blogs per month (once a fortnight), or one to two as an all-rounder
  • You can stick to deadlines
  • You know your way around an apostrophe and can safely determine when a comma is necessary
  • You like the sound of some extra cash in your bank account
  • Bonus points if you're good with a camera

All you have to do to apply is tell us a little bit about yourself and attach a 250-350 word piece about a stand-out Wellington shop or experience.

Have a look at our previous blogs to see what we’re all about.

Send us an example and apply now. Applications close Monday 17 October, 10am.

    Hi ... I have been doing the Wellington Daily Photo for most days! since May 2007 ...over 3000 images of all sorts ... and yes there is some interesting history about the world's greatest little capital. This has just been an interesting for me and a great way to meet people. Have sold a number of the images to advertising and design agencies.
    Lived in Wellington most of my life; have a quirky and creative perspective; can write an engaging narrative when needed; photographer and graphic designer; walk and talk to a wide variety of locals and visitors around the city.

    Interested to talk to you
