The ideal candidate will have comprehensive knowledge of the South Florida rap and hip-hop scene, from longtime legends to the newest artists making waves on SoundCloud. We're looking for someone with a passion for the music and an understanding of how it connects to the local community.
Candidates also need serious writing and reporting skills. The ideal writer will interview artists, attend and review shows, and write essays and other coverage tracking trends and changes in the genre. Pitching compelling stories and meeting deadlines are both necessary skills.
This is a freelance position. Local candidates are preferred. People of color, women and nonbinary candidates, people with disabilities, and writers across the LGBTQIA spectrum are encouraged to apply.
To be considered, you'll need:
- a resumé
- two writing samples (ideally published clips) in attachments or as links to stories
- two pitches for stories you'd like to write for New Times.
