... And can you write?
Because this fine music section is in need of a freelance country music writer, someone who knows a thing or seven about the local country music scene, as well as the national one.
If this is you, and you can write — as in you know how to interview people (musicians) and write about the local scene (preview a show, review a show, predict the next big star) — then please reach out to us.
Are you reliable? Can you turn things in on time? We don't mean to be picky, but a reliable and informative writer would be nice.
Drop a line to the music editor at firstname.lastname@example.org with some of your clips and your best pitch for why you think you can do it.
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.
