Journalists worldwide can apply for a paid assignment in San Diego, California.

The Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice seeks Peace Writers to create narratives of females chosen for the Women PeaceMakers program, a 10-week residency program for women from conflict-affected countries who have been involved in human rights and peacemaking.

Peace Writers will be paired up with peacemakers, interviewing them daily and producing a document that includes narrative stories, conflict histories and conflict timelines that will provide context for the WPM narratives.

The full-time position requires 40 hours per week for 10 weeks. Writers will receive a US$600 stipend per week, but must cover their own housing and travel costs.

Qualifications include a graduate degree or current enrollment, experience interviewing in an intercultural setting and the ability to produce a 30-80 page document under tight deadlines.

Submit an application, reference sheet, personal essay, two recommendation letters, resume and two writing samples by June 15.
