Do you make great blogs on the internet? We are seeking a freelancer who can fill in writing (mostly) news posts on Gothamist from time to time, on an as-needed basis (for now at least). The ideal candidate will have a thorough knowledge of Gothamist's focus and style and have a keen grasp of all the local issues our readers care about.

Pay is competitive and on a per-diem basis. We're looking for someone who's just as comfortable reporting out an original story as he/she is synthesizing an engaging, aggregated blog post. Experience committing acts of Journalism is important, but not absolutely necessary if you've got a web presence that shows off your writing.

So if you're versatile, highly knowledgable about NYC, capable of strong writing and nimble blogging, please send us a cover letter and resume and links to some writing samples. NO attachments, please (and don't worry if the resume formatting isn't perfect).
