So, you like music. Hey, good for you. Maybe you've even written about it on a blog. Even better. Perhaps you even have a little background in writing. Tremendous. To quote a famous wartime poster: Rocks Off wants you.
We are seeking a few good writers to add to our staff of bloggers. While we do a lot of live show reviews, we are specifically looking for people who can come up with interesting ideas about local, regional and national music and turn them into interesting stories.
You don't need to have a bunch of technical expertise, but you do need to be a good writer with good ideas. Send your resume, at least three story ideas (a paragraph pitch will suffice for each) and some samples of your work to email@example.com and maybe you can join the team. Boo yah!
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.
