About the Role

The exclusive Writing Program at The Indian Economist brings together a group of sharp minds to write crisp 500 word articles that help our readers understand (a) Big stories – how do these affect the reader? (b) Bigger picture & trends behind smaller stories – noticed a small event happening, but connecting the dots and giving the reader the bigger picture behind these


The Writing Program begins at the Analyst position (check the Career Progression tab below) and climbs to the position of Senior Editor. Analysts work with Editorial Associates to pick major topics to write about. On average, members of the writing program are expected to contribute 3 stories a week (500 words).


The turnaround time for stories can be short, in conjunction with the news cycle. The program therefore needs sharp writers that can add value to readers with well research and analysed stories in a tight time frame (Deadlines can vary between 6 to 48 hours depending on the type of story)
