The Bangor Daily News is seeking a news features writer to cover Portland, Maine with voice, perspective and context.

We’re not looking for a beat reporter. Your daily routine will almost never involve filing updates from city council meetings. You won’t be asked to write straightforward stories about business breakfasts or to profile every new restaurant.

We’re looking for a skilled and experienced writer who understands why Portland is an amazing city — who gets what makes it different from other places in Maine, but can also show what connects it with the rest of the state.

We need a writer willing to scour the city for stories no one has told, and who isn’t afraid to say what he or she really means. You can be funny. You can have attitude. You can write with a point of view and take risks.

If you’ve ever felt hemmed in by the mores of traditional print journalism, this may be the job for you.

We’d prefer to hire someone with a deep source network, but we’re happy if you can demonstrate the skills and experience needed to cultivate one.

Send your resume along with links to clips that demonstrate your voice as a writer.
