Freelance writers needed to cover annual conference in Oakland

The Code for America Summit is where government and technology intersect. The three-day event is an opportunity for public servants, advocates, entrepreneurs, technologists, and volunteers to get together in one room and tackle some of government’s biggest challenges in the digital age.

This year, we are seeking freelance writers to document some of the 60+ breakout sessions that are being held at Summit. Writers will be assigned to up to five sessions and be tasked with writing a narrative piece for Code for America’s blog summarizing the discussion and key takeaways.
