In partnership with ContentGrow, SCMP Style is seeking freelance luxury, fashion, and entertainment writers who have excellent published work samples and comms skills in English, but who are also capable of reading and speaking Vietnamese.

Many of the stories that the editors are keen on end up taking place in Vietnam. Assignments often concern people, events, and happenings that would require writers to have Vietnamese language proficiency for the purpose of research and interviews. 

Background: ‘Style’ is the luxury portal of the South China Morning Post. It focuses on everything from fashion, watches, jewelry, and expensive cars, to celebrities, billionaires, food, travel, and wine. It defines luxury not just by a hefty price tag, but by the exclusivity and rarity of access and information. 

Audience: Young and affluent, with the bulk falling into the 25 to 35, 18 to 24, and 36 to 45 ranges. The gender split is approximately half-half. Geographically, Style has good reach when it comes to the US, Malaysia, Singapore, and Hong Kong, and it’s looking to focus more on Southeast Asia in the coming year.
