We are looking for someone who can find and tell interesting stories across multiple platforms and promote them on social media. Our ideal candidate is a self-starter who has an understanding of what resonates with readers, meets deadlines and works well in a team setting. The position also includes working with others to plan and edit feature sections.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette publishes eight feature sections a week, covering the arts, culture, society, restaurants, entertainment and interesting people. 

We are looking for a journalist with the following skills:

• A strong record of achievement in reporting.

• Experience in multimedia storytelling and/or an interest in further developing those skills.

• A passion for creative storytelling.

• The ability to take photographs and videos.

A degree in journalism from an accredited college or equivalent newspaper experience is required. The position requires being available to work some nights and weekends.

This is a safety-sensitive position. A candidate must pass a drug screening and background check and have a clean driving record.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette offers vacation, sick leave, holidays, retirement benefits, long-term disability, maternity leave and other benefits.
