If you're a talented reporter/editor — one who knows online and social inside-out — looking for a company that encourages you to run your own show and make your own editorial decisions, keep reading.
Our non-profit hyperlocal journalism group, Advocate Media - Dallas, produces five award-winning glossy magazines, along with companion web and social media sites, read by more than 500,000 people monthly. We need a conscientious, relationship-building writer/editor capable of following through on her/his own ideas with a candid, honest writing style.
This is position is a pioneering opportunity for a skilled reporter/editor to design her/his own job, with support from our senior editorial team. You must be ambitious and capable of shifting gears at a moment's notice, and you must also be able to work with us to develop your own editorial strategy. And if you're brilliant with video and social, we need you.
If you're enthusiastic about journalism, and if you're a visionary who has the ability to make things happen, this job is for you. Ideally, you've been a writer/editor for a couple of years but know you can be better if you're given a chance to do things the right way without being micro-managed.
You'll receive that chance with us.
Preferably you already live in and love Dallas, you want to make a difference, you enjoy working with people, and you're eager to work in an easy-going, let's-do-this environment. And ideally, you have a journalism degree and several years of reporting experience with a daily/weekly/monthly publication.
