Cultist is looking to expand its roster of freelance writers. We're looking for enthusiastic and reliable freelancers who can generate pitches and take assignments covering events throughout Miami's arts and culture scene.
You should be as comfortable blogging about The Real Housewives of Miami as you are writing about the latest museum exhibition. If you are passionate about arts and culture in the 305, are knowledgeable about the issues facing the arts community, and have a great sense of what's on the horizon, we want to hear from you. If you have a single area of expertise -- like ballet, contemporary dance, or the local literary scene -- we want to hear from you too.
If writing about the Magic City's culture scene is your dream come true, send an email with a brief introduction outlining your background, short pitches for story ideas, and clips of your previous work (or a writing sample if you've yet to publish) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please type "Freelance Writers" in the subject line.
And, yes, we pay.
Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, 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 Miami with no paywalls.
