Salary Not Specified


Community news is the bedrock of democracy. We're the publisher of Tube City Almanac, a non-profit news website in the Pittsburgh Metro Area, focused on McKeesport, PA, and we are in need of freelance writers to help us cover the City of Duquesne, McKeesport Area Schools, Duquesne Schools and White Oak Borough.

These are communities full of great people, and they need their stories to be told.

We pay $50 for each story, plus expenses. We can also work with students who need internship credit.

You must have reliable transportation, and you must be reliable yourself.

You need to commit to attending — in person — at least one meeting per month (usually at night) and producing a story from it.

Additional feature stories are welcome and payment is made within 15 to 30 days of publication.

To apply, send your name, phone number, and two writing samples (or links to two writing samples).

Tube City Community Media Inc. is an equal opportunity organization and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, gender expression, age, national origin, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status.
