As a writer for Verywell, you should be able to navigate complicated topics and present them in a way that is understandable for a lay audience while providing actionable next steps for all levels. If you would like to know more about this opportunity, tell us about yourself at Please include your relevant credentials as well as links to previous content you’ve written related to your particular topics of interest.

About the Role:

Most of our users find us after Googling a health condition. Therefore, we are very SEO-driven and have quite a few templates to help writers structure their articles.

There is sometimes confusion about people hoping to contribute fitness, nutrition, mindfulness, and parenting content, but those live over on our other verticals (Verywell Fit, Verywell Mind, Verywell Family). Verywell Health is a disease, condition, and treatment-specific site.

About You:

With that in mind, we’re looking specifically for writers who:

Have a health or medical background, proven by credentials (e.g. LPN, RN, MPH)
Are medical journalists with proven experience writing for a consumer audience
Have experience and/or are comfortable covering public health issues

We require research and primary sources, like journals, but interviews are not required.

Owned by Dotdash, Verywell has a traditional freelance model that pays writers to create content on their own schedule without limiting their ability to work on other projects.
