Now Seeking a New Nightlife Columnist

The Houston Press has an immediate opening for a columnist who can translate the multitude of experiences to be had within Houston’s nightclub, bar and music-scenes into an informative and entertaining semimonthly column. Trust us, that’s harder than it sounds.

The pay is good, but anyone who thinks the job is about getting paid to go out and drink is sorely mistaken. We want storytellers. No professional writing experience is required, but some kind of advanced writing know-how is highly encouraged, as is familiarity with the city’s after-dark demimonde. A successful column will stretch past the noise, congestion and social niceties of a typical night out in Houston to sketch a word-portrait of the soul of this city. And then do it again two weeks later; the ability to hit regular deadlines is also required. Knowing your way around a camera is a huge plus, too.

Candidates must submit three (3) acceptable sample columns before the position will be filled. Please contact Music Editor Chris Gray at [email protected]; no phone calls, please.
