Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

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,

reviews, funny lists, rants, and experimental fiction. We even pay this writer to pretend he's various local animals and this artist to tweak out some animated gifs.

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

cultist@miaminewtimes.com. 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.

Follow Cultist on Facebook and Twitter @CultistMiami.

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.
