Houston Press Is Looking For A New Web Editor

With Houston Press web editor Katharine Shilcutt on her way to becoming our new food critic, we're looking for someone to take over her duties as web editor.

The web editor creates, manages and promotes our content to grow community and readers. There is also a lot of work with photographers for slideshows and to illustrate our online stories. This person will work closely with the editors of the Press's various blogs as well as with the editor to develop story ideas. This person should also be acquainted with Facebook and Twitter.

Go to the Village Voice Media job listings  for a slightly more detailed job description.

Applicants should send their cover letter, including links to any profiles on social media sites, plus three online journalism examples (blogging, slideshows or a project) to Bill Jensen at HP-web-editor@villagevoicemedia.com and copied to margaret.downing@houstonpress.com.

KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
