Want to be the next Loose Lips?
District of Columbia

Ad Expires: 
May 27, 2013
Job ID: 1488110


 Washington City Paper is looking for a smart, stylish writer and tenacious reporter to take over its marquee political column. For more than two decades, Loose Lips has been a must-read for anyone who follows local politics and government in the District of Columbia. We're looking for a scoop machine who feels equally comfortable reporting breaking news, opining about developments in the 2014 mayoral campaign and other elections, memorably lampooning local-politics blowhards, and diligently ferreting out the secret contracts they steer to their cronies. Responsibilities include a weekly column, tending to a high-profile blog, long-form City Paper cover stories, and attending as many political fundraisers, Advisory Neighborhood Commission meetings, and campaign rallies as it takes to dominate coverage of D.C. politics. Please send cover letter and resume to Mike Madden, Editor,
