Description:

The Santa Fe New Mexican is looking for a writing superstar for its award-winning arts-and-culture magazine Pasatiempo.
THE source for thoughtful, engaging arts writing in Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico, this weekly covers a small but diverse city with an outsized arts scene, including the Santa Fe Opera, more than a dozen theater companies, multiple music festivals, chamber orchestras and symphony orchestras, the original Meow Wolf, 250-plus galleries, multiple art markets, more than two dozen museums and a vibrant pop music scene.
The candidate should be curious, inventive, detail oriented, have a broad knowledge of the arts, and at least five years of experience writing about them – from information dense blurbs and alternative story forms to long stories that spin a tale worth reading.
In this tight-knit team, grace and sense of humor in the face of intense deadline pressure is required. Some editing experience preferred.
Send a cover letter, a resume and links to five of your best arts clips to Pasatiempo Editor Tracy Mobley-Martinez at tmobley-martinez@sfnewmexican.com.

No phone calls please.

The New Mexican is an equal opportunity employer and a New Mexico Family Friendly company
