Creative Loafing Tampa Bay has an immediate opening for a staff writer.

We're looking for someone who's excited to speak up for people whose voices, stories and struggles are ignored or mischaracterized by other local outlets. Our staff writers are part of a fast-paced newsroom driven by a small and dedicated team ready to pivot when news breaks and cook longer stories on the side.

You should be comfortable making public record requests and growing sources, then following up with them over and over again — all while providing unique insight and context to the news of the day. If you have an interest in the arts, food or music, you'd be welcome to contribute to that coverage as well.

Who we are

Euclid Media Group, which owns and operates Creative Loafing Tampa Bay as well as altweeklies in Detroit, San Antonio, Cincinnati, Orlando, Cleveland, St. Louis and Louisville, offers a competitive compensation package including a 401K and health, dental and vision insurance. You'll also be eligible for monthly and quarterly bonuses on top of your salary.

How to apply

Interested candidates should email a cover letter, resume and three samples of published work to Editor in Chief Ray Roa ( and Euclid Media Group Executive Editor Sarah Fenske (
