Do you love seeking out and hitting up the hottest new restaurants, going to beer festivals, pop-up dinners, and food truck rallies, and/or are generally the person your friends are always asking for recs on where to eat or drink around Seattle? Well, you're in luck: The Stranger is currently in search of a smart, insightful editorial intern to help cover Seattle's lively, ever-changing food and drink scene, and this could be the position for you.
Ideal candidates are passionate about food; can translate this passion into words and/or have previous experience writing about food; possess some knowledge about Seattle’s restaurant and bar scene; and can cover it in a lively, informed way for our blog, Slog, and for the Food & Drink section of The Stranger’s biweekly print publication. They are also self-motivated, have a strong personal voice, and a sense of humor.
This position pays $15 an hour and is 15 hours a week for 12 weeks, and candidates should be available to attend Friday afternoon editorial meetings, with otherwise flexible hours. Women, non-students, and people of color are encouraged to apply. People with experience writing about Seattle neighborhoods outside of Capitol Hill and Downtown are also encouraged to apply.
If this sounds like you, please send us a list of 10-15 food events that you’d be interested in covering between September and November (we don’t need you to write about each event, just a list of the events you are interested in writing about), and potentially any Seattle food-and-drink-related topics (trends, up-and-coming chefs, restaurant openings on the horizon) you’d be interested in covering that tells us something about who you are. Send this along with a resume and two writing samples (or links to your writing that can be found online) to email@example.com by August 28.
