Phoenix New Times is seeking talented freelance writers to contribute to our music section.
We're looking for reliable writers who can meet deadlines and take on original reporting on the harmonious happenings all over our community. While we're open to anything (the more offbeat, the better), we're particularly interested in stories about the local musicians that make Phoenix great or challenge the Valley's status quo.
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 email your résumé, cover letter, links to published articles, and, most importantly, pitches to culture editor Jason Keil (email@example.com).

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.
