Freelancer in San Francisco - Castro Courier
The Castro Courier, a neighborhood newspaper that serves San Francisco's Castro and Upper Market neighborhoods, is seeking Bay Area-based freelancers to write news and feature stories on a monthly basis.
We are principally looking for writers with news backgrounds to write about issues facing the neighborhood, be it development, public safety, transportation, etc. Writers MUST be based in the Bay Area and be willing to travel out to the neighborhood to write their stories.
This is a great way to get good experience writing about important and timely urban issues while learning to write for a hyper-local audience.
Candidates should have a demonstrated ability to write good, tight stories. As this is a monthly publication, a writer should have 1-2 weeks to write the story. Needs to be comfortable looking into public documents.
How To Apply:
Please send 2-3 clips (links are fine) to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. Pay is $40/story.
