Here's a news flash: Good jobs for writers really do exist.
You can parlay your love of the written word into a paying gig.
All entries will be considered by a panel of judges connected to automotive journalism who we’ll unveil later this summer.
The top three articles will be published in the Hagerty Classic Cars newsletter, and the winning writer will be commissioned to write a further six articles for Hagerty, have his or her story sent out to some of the UK’s top classic magazine readers, and will be invited to attend the 2019 Goodwood Revival as a guest of Hagerty, spending the day with Hagerty’s media team. There’s no cash alternative to the prize, it does not represent an offer of employment, and the judges’ decision is final.
As the Editor of the Hagerty Newsletter, I enjoy working with some of the UK’s best classic motoring writers.
