Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

It's been a minute since we here at the Observer put out a notice for local freelance writers for this little arts and culture blog, The Mixmaster. But here we are, looking you straight in the eye with the simple question, are you the one we want?

It's a question only you can answer, but here a few more specifics on what we're looking for:

A Resident Art Nerd We're looking for someone to contribute criticism and commentary on visual arts on a freelance basis. You'll need a passion for and background in visual arts and some professional writing experience.

A Know-it- All If Dallas culture is your thing, if you keep track of everything from theater to local film to all the cool events, hit us up. We want to party with you and your writing.

Etc. We need freelancers to contribute 1-3 posts per week covering specific genres they're specifically interested in and for which they can demonstrate some passion. Specifically, we're looking for people to write about: visual arts, comedy, dance, TV, film, etc.

Will you be my new girl Friday? Send an email identifying yourself with attached writing samples to lauren.smart@dallasobserver.com.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
