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.
To apply for Night + Day, please send a cover letter detailing your experience and interests, along with three to five of your best clips, to Night + Day Editor Olivia Alvarez at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To apply for Art Attack, please send your writing samples and cover letter to Editor Margaret Downing at email@example.com.
No phone calls, please, unless we have hopelessly confused you.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, 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 Houston with no paywalls.
