Seattle Weekly has an immediate opening for a news blogger. Our ideal

Seattle Weekly has an immediate opening for a news blogger. Our ideal candidate is not only familiar with deadlines, but motivated by them; has enough reporting chops to ferret out when they’re being spun; has a nuanced understanding of how the web works, and how writing for it differs from print; and is unafraid of occasionally offering his or her opinion, not just rehashing the what, where, and whys that can be read elsewhere.Applicants must have demonstrated writing experience, and a proven ability to make cynical and world-weary editors chuckle, if not laugh outright. Familiarity with online publishing programs and photo editing tools is a plus, though not mandatory since they take about a half hour to master. An ideal candidate would not only be able to work and coexist peaceably with other hardheaded writers, but also has the kind of mind that is constantly churning out new ideas to be stress-tested. “Self-starter” is the imperfect way of describing this individual, but it’s what we’re left with so it’ll have to do. This is a full-time position, with competitive salary and benefits. Interested and qualified applicants should submit a cover letter, resume, and two or three of their best samples to me, Caleb Hannan, at channan@seattleweekly.com. No phone calls please.
