Jordan Davidson is the new Editorial Director at VeryWell Health.

"I’m filling in as the editorial director at Verywell Family for the next few months. I’m looking to add some freelancers to my roster for specific topic areas (more info below). Rates start at $200 for ~1k+ word articles. We have a number of assignments coming up around Black parenting & are looking to add more Black writers. You do not need to be a parent, though some articles will only go to parents. We have multiple assignments per month so this could be a recurring gig. You can also pitch us. I would love to get some non-binary and gender nonconforming voices on the site. Again, you don’t have to be a parent, but if you are that’s a plus. I have several assignments open in this space and am open to pitches as well. Fertility writers! I am looking for someone with a strong understanding of fertility-related topics who isn’t afraid to dive into the science of it all. I will want to see writing samples. I’m open to folks who aren’t traditional journalists but have a background in academia. Health news writers. Not gonna lie, you’ll likely get a lot of COVID assignments—at least to start. The ideal person here is someone who is comfortable reading studies and reporting in layperson terms. I will want to see clips/samples. News stories tend to be around 800 words. If your background fits any of these assignments, please send a few lines about yourself to and some clips or writing samples you may have. I am not open to any pitches or writers outside these areas right now."
