The Dallas Observer Arts and Culture Section Is Looking for Writers
This could be you. Don't you look cool?
So you took out student loans for a liberal arts degree and ended up selling life insurance. You could let your sharp writing skills and instinct for a good story atrophy, but why don't you keep them in tip-top shape writing for the Dallas Observer's arts and culture section in your spare time instead?
We're looking for freelance contributors who have a finger to the wind of the most interesting, weird, cool or important things happening in Dallas culture right now, the people skills to tease out a story's heart in interviews and writing ability to put it all down in a compelling way.
In conversation with your friends are you constantly identifying emerging trends and issues affecting Dallas? We want you, but in a totally platonic way. Probably.
Culture is a wide umbrella, so a degree of comfort covering an array of subjects from film, to theater, to books, to art is desirable. However, if you have a niche interest or area of expertise that you want to take the lead on we want to hear from you too.
