Newcity seeks an assistant editor to work directly with the editor in building on the foundation of music coverage in Newcity. This is a paid, part-time position.
Is music journalism dying? We don’t think so. We think it’s time to roll up your sleeves, make your metaphorical fists, and start a fight with the forces of banality at work in the culture. You know who and where they are.
The ideal candidate would be an exceptional writer and journalist, with a wide range of genre interests coupled with an innate feel for the musical zeitgeist. The ability to craft creative and provocative essays and features, while inspiring the same from a stable of freelance contributors, is paramount. As is an ability to source strong local music-news features. A working comfort with digital and social media are expected; multimedia skills are a plus.
To apply, send a cover letter, résumé and links to published stories to Newcity editor Brian Hieggelke at [email protected] If you have ideas to share, please do so. But do NOT call.
Newcity is an equal-opportunity employer.
