Phoenix New Times is looking for freelance food writers to help cover the unique and growing food scene of metro Phoenix for the food and drink section.
We're looking for reliable writers who can meet deadlines and take on original reporting that examines unique culinary happenings all over our community. While we're open to all ideas (yes, we can get weird with it), we're particularly interested in detailed Mexican food reporting, cocktail and beer culture, food trends, restaurant industry news, and whatever you’re extra-passionate about covering.
Freelancers must be prepared to pitch their own story ideas, take photos (yes, your phones can do the trick), and be open to assignments from the New Times food editor (me).
Please email a resume, links to published articles (doesn’t have to have your byline on it), a few story ideas, and what interests you about food to firstname.lastname@example.org.
