Wanted: Visual Arts Writers for Quick Looks Around Houston

Interested in making a big splash about visual arts writing in Houston?

The Houston Press is looking for additional freelancers to add to its visual arts coverage. Specifically we're looking for people who can write short reviews of shows and galleries around town that will appear both in our print edition and online at Art Attack.

Qualifications: Applicants need to not only know about visual art but be able to communicate their thoughts by writing in clear, entertaining and authoritative fashion. Accuracy is essential as is a basic knowledge of English grammar. Ability to hit weekly deadlines is also crucial.

We're interested in talking to people who really know the Houston art scene and who can go beyond the headliner shows to find the hidden gems, the developing talents this city has to offer.

If interested, please email a cover letter, three ideas for shows/exhibitions that you think should be covered here and three to five examples of your best writing. Send them to margaret.downing@houstonpress.com. No phone calls please.
