The Houston Press Seeks Arts Freelancers

Do you love your city? The Houston Press is looking to expand our ranks of freelance Arts contributors with talented, timely and insightful students of the pen (or keystroke, really), and of the Bayou City. In other words, consider this an open invitation to come stoke your passion for books, film, dance, comics, comedy, photography, classical music and jazz, museums, gaming – or whatever else might light your fire – and earn a little walking-around money to boot.

As in Houston itself, here the fine arts and pop culture coexist quite peacefully. In the past two weeks, we’ve covered Broadway musicals, Glengarry Glen Ross, Dave Chappelle, Doctor Who, Ernest Hemingway’s espionage, Houston Ballet, the Buffalo Bayou Regatta, Beauty and the Beast, the Game of Thrones live orchestral concert, the Houston Auto Show and the Internet etiquette of sending pictures of your naughty bits to the opposite sex (i.e., don’t do it, unless they ask). It’s quite a spread, and that’s not even counting our thrice-weekly roundups of places to go and things to do across the city.

A high degree of knowledge in your chosen field(s) of interest is a must; some writing experience (journalistic or otherwise) is preferred, although not necessary. We ask but two things: If possible, please submit a writing sample or two of reasonable length (less than 1,000 words) with your inquiry. Also, please be patient with us as we go over the submissions.

If interested, contact Culture Editor Chris Gray at chris.gray@houstonpress.com. No phone calls, please.
