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

Hey. Do you like food? Like really, really like food? Have you ever cried actual tears of joy over a dozen raw Gulf Oysters? Do you have way too many opinions about the Great American Brisket Wars™? If so, you should apply to be one of the Observer's food writers, who get paid actual money to eat their way around Dallas. 

To apply, submit a resume and two food-related writing samples (published or unpublished) to Beth.Rankin@DallasObserver.com. 

Who knows — maybe one day, you'll be that insufferable dinner party guest who bores everyone to tears with a 20-minute story about your hard-hitting piece on burnt ends as a metaphor for American dining (or something).

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.
