Want to join the SFist team? Do you feel like you have something to say about San Francisco and the Bay Area that no one else is talking about? Are you painfully clever, punchy with words, and can handle the occasional ego bruising? Well, why not write for SFist? It's oodles of fun. Seriously.
Here's what we're looking for (but, please, don't feel limited by this list):
Music Editor: Help shape and give voice to our sparse music coverage. We're looking for at least four four posts per week. Aural enthusiasts with a strong interest in the local music scene(s) are strongly encouraged to apply.
Food Editor: We hear food is big here. Tell us why, where to go, and review some of the stuff you cram in your mouth. We want someone who enjoys both highbrow and lowbrow items.
Arts & Entertainment writers: Music, food, lit., and alleged creativity are big here, so we're looking for reviews, interviews, and what's new.
Political writers: Local politics is pretty much a celebrity clusterfuck, where politicians and wonks think they're more important than they actually are. How can you not want to write about them? We're looking for someone who (inexplicably) watches the BOS meetings every week -- or as many as you can stomach -- and knows how to steer away from advocacy journalism.
Also, we're looking for writers interested in covering statewide stuff, the lowdown in Sacramento, etc.
East Bay coverage: Rumor is there's more to the Bay Area than San Francisco. Let us know about it.
While SFist can't offer you monetary compensation, the incentives to writing for SFist are aplenty and it will look way boss on your resume. Posts range anywhere from 100 words to, well, a lot more. You should plan on posting at least four times a week. And, more importantly, you should have fun with it.
Send your resume, beats of interest, and three samples to brock[at]sfist.com. Please put "call for submissions" in the subject field. Thank you.
