Are you a regular at those Houston "throw-downs" involving pork bellies and fried chickens? Do you go to Houston festivals and try one of everything from each booth? When a hot Houston restaurant has a special event, are you the first to sign up? Do you take pictures of every damn thing you put in your mouth? Can you string together sentences in an entertaining fashion?
Then Eating Our Words wants you. This blog has become the go-to destination for everything food in Houston, and we need more writers so we can continue to expand and meet the city's, um, insatiable appetite for news on the scene.
To apply, send a cover letter, resume and examples of your writing to catherine.matusow at houstonpress.com (replace the "at" with a @ sign; you know the drill).
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.
