Description:

Mid-Atlantic Media, publisher of the award-winning Baltimore STYLE magazine and Baltimore’s Child, is seeking a staff writer to contribute web stories, news items and the occasional feature for three magazines, Baltimore STYLE, Baltimore’s Child and Washington Family. Our staff writers also contribute to our social media presence.

This job requires a personable writer with strong reporting skills, as well as a conversant knowledge of the Baltimore metropolitan area and a willingness to be out and about in the community. Some reporting will be conducted in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.

While this staff writer will be mostly contributing to our lifestyle magazines, our writers have the opportunity to work on all of our publications and custom media projects.

Who are we looking for?

  • A self-starter who is aware of current trends and issues
  • A writer who is always thinking of the next story and enjoys the writing/reporting process
  • Experience with WordPress and social media
  • Ability to brainstorm with little lead-time
