New Times is seeking talented freelance writers to contribute to its arts and culture section.
Are you obsessed with movies, pop culture, comedy, TV shows, video games, or comic books? That's just a glimpse at what we cover — in addition to fashion, the dating scene, and general geekery. If you're an expert who's interested in writing about any of those topics, then we want to hear from you.
Journalism experience is preferred, but not necessary. Writers will need to come up with original story ideas, meet deadlines, and occasionally take on assigned pieces.
Think you'd be a good fit? Please e-mail your résumé, cover letter, and links to published articles to culture editor Becky Bartkowski (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, 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 Phoenix with no paywalls.
