City of Ate Needs a Part-Time Food Blogger
This here Beard-nominated restaurant blog is looking for a part-time reporter and writer to help contribute to Dallas' daily food and restaurant conversation.
Google-imaging bacon: a required skill for all food bloggers.
The freelance blogger will work with the Observer's editors, interns and (brand new!) food critic to identify, develop and write stories about the city's restaurants, the people who run them and the food they turn out. And bacon. We'll probably need some bacon stories.
Food passion and knowledge are musts, but we're not looking for a second critic. We need someone unafraid to pick up the phone, chase down a rumor and ask the chefs the tough questions (i.e., "Did you ever think about adding bacon to that?")
This is a part-time job paid on a per-story basis. Hours are flexible, but the blogger will need to be able to work during part of the workday Monday through Friday. (In other words, if you have a full-time day job, this isn't for you.)
Interested candidates should send me a short note, a resume, some writing samples, and links to any websites, social media accounts or interesting criminal histories.
