Miami New Times Seeks Writers for Night&Day and Cultist
Miami New Times has immediate openings for writers for the
Night&Day calendar section and online culture blog, Cultist. For
N&D, ideal candidates should be able to pen an event preview that is
as enjoyable as the event itself. For the blog, we're looking for any
cultural coverage that showcases quality writing: profiles, Q&As,
To paraphrase that guy who wrote Fear and Loathing,
it's a damned shame that (arts) journalism is overrun with dullards,
bums, and hacks -- that's it's ripe with apathy and complacence, and
generally stuck in a bog of stagnant mediocrity. If you share this
sentiment, we'd like you to write for us.
Please note, we are not looking for snark for snark's sake -- we consider
that the Chlamydia of the blogosphere. We'd much prefer a tone that
makes use of your wit, judgement, and empathy. If
you feel the urge to reflexively snigger at pop culture and its victims,
this is not the format for you.
To apply, send your resume and two short writing samples to
firstname.lastname@example.org. Due to the volume of applications we receive,
we will only contact those who meet our questionably loose
requirements. No phone calls, please. We recently threw our phone out
the damn window.
