Think you know your way around the arts scene? Can you write about it in a smart, concise and above all entertaining way? The Houston Press Night + Day section and Art Attack are both looking for freelance arts writers.
Applicants should have an interest in and know something about the arts scene in Houston. Clear, accurate and clever writing is highly valued as is the ability to meet deadlines. Photography skills are a plus.
Areas of coverage will include both low and high-brow visual and performing arts, including comedy clubs, the symphony, dance, theater, literary events, festivals, repertory films, gallery and museum exhibits, and pop culture.
