The Houston Press is looking to add to the ranks of its news freelancers and is interested in applicants with some experience covering serious subjects such as crime, courts, local government and medicine (to name a few areas).

We are looking for writers who can interview other people and accurately convey their information in the form of news stories. The ability to take photographs and to write in an entertaining manner will be considered as pluses in anyone's candidacy. Experience with Houston's wide ranging weather would be good to have as well.

Freelancers work directly with the editor-in-chief on their stories which will be edited and published online at houstonpress.com.

Applicants should email 3-5 examples of their best news writing, three ideas for news stories that could be published in the Houston Press and a resume to [email protected] No phone calls please. 
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.
The Houston Press is a nationally award-winning, 32-year-old publication ruled by endless curiosity, a certain amount of irreverence, the desire to get to the truth and to point out the absurd as well as the glorious.
