The Houston Press is looking to add to its freelancers ranks with writers who know something about the arts and pop culture scene in Houston and, in some cases, the larger world.
We are looking to expand our collection of hard-working writers for this blog dedicated to a range of topics: from pop culture of all sorts to assessments of the visual and performing arts. Opera, photography, comics and commercials -- we look at them all.
The basics: You need to know what you're talking about and you need to write following the rules of grammar and with a certain amount of cleverness.
You hit your marks AKA make your deadlines.
You can come up with story ideas on your own and are also not adverse to following directions. In regards to the later, here's your first set:
