Chicagoist Is Looking For Writers And Photographers

By Chicagoist in News on Jun 30, 2015 9:00PM

Chicagoist is looking to add some fresh faces and voices to our roster of contributors, including photographers. Our assignments vary, depending on the beat, but we want contributors who are passionate and well-versed on the subjects they cover. And individuals who share our great love for this wonderful city, flaws and all. A good sense of humor and enjoyment of staff happy hour doesn't hurt, either.

Compensation is available for certain specialities, with rates that are competitive with other web and independent print outlets.

You MUST reside in the Chicagoland area. Experience with other local media is preferred, especially web publishers, since we often need to turn around assignments very quickly, and want contributors who are comfortable in the digital workflow.

We are currently looking to expand our coverage of the following topics/roles:

- Photographer
- General weekend coverage (creating content to run during our weekend hours) contributor
- LGBTQ news, events and coverage contributor
- EDM, Jazz/Classical and DIY music contributors
- Books and Live Lit contributors
- Comedy contributors
- Community/Neighborhood News (Local coverage and original POV content) contributor
- Food & Drink contributor
- Sports contributor
