Do you love talking – and writing – about money?
Are you excited to explore the psychology of wealth, the challenges of saving, and the way money influences every level of society?

It’s rarely talked about openly, still isn’t taught in schools, and yet each and every one of us interacts with it daily. If you’ve noticed that before, and if you want to help shed light on the role money plays in our lives through creative storytelling in a fast-paced and fun environment, we want to hear from you.

- Insatiable curiosity and an ability to identify the heart of a story quickly
- A strong voice and writing style that keeps readers engaged
