The Dallas Observer Needs a Part-Time Food Writer and Other Contributors

This here Beard-winning restaurant blog is looking for a part-time reporter and writer to help contribute to Dallas' daily food and restaurant conversation.

The freelance blogger will work with the Observer's editors and food critic to identify, develop and write stories about the city's restaurants, the people who run them and the food they turn out. And bacon. We'll probably need some bacon stories.

Food passion and knowledge are musts, but we're not looking for a second critic. We need someone unafraid to pick up the phone, chase down a rumor and ask the chefs the tough questions (i.e., "Did you ever think about adding bacon to that?")

This is a freelance job paid on a per-story basis. (In other words, if you have a full-time day job, this isn't for you.)

If you do have a full-time job but think you could contribute occasionally or even regularly, we're always looking for contributors and would love to hear from you.

Interested candidates should send me a short note, a resume, some writing samples, and links to any websites, social media accounts or interesting criminal histories.
