Work for the Dallas Observer
The Dallas Observer: You built that. Or you can, anyway, if one of the following opportunities suits you.
Clubs Editor The clubs editor researches, reports, writes and maintains the Observer's clubs and concert listings, helping ensure that our newspaper and web site offer the city's most comprehensive, liveliest and most battle-tested nightlife guide.
This is a part-time (32 hours per week), hourly wage position, with no benefits. Successful candidates will have a working knowledge of the local nightlife scene; a proven ability to produce lively, clean and accurate copy; and a can-do attitude. As in, "Hey, can you go down to that new bar and check it out on the company dime?" "Yeah, boss, I can do that!"
Interested candidates should send an introductory email, resume and their three best writing samples to Joe Tone, editor, at email@example.com. No phone calls, please.
Contributing Writer We're also looking for a contributing freelance writer to produce coverage of the local arts and culture scene, as well as other areas. Successful candidates will have a proven ability to identify and craft interesting profiles, event previews, interviews and other stories, along with an interest in writing about the following areas: visual art, film, comedy, theater, music, food, pop culture, and so on. Ideally this freelancer will also have the opportunity to produce long-form stories for the newspaper.
This is a freelance position, paid by assignment. The ideal candidate will be able to contribute 10-20 items per week. Send an introductory email, resume and your three best writing samples to Joe Tone, editor, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
