Westword.com is looking for mountain-addicted wordsmiths to help us tell the stories of Colorado's outdoor-sports scene. If you spend your weekends dodging lift lines, count Sniagrab as a national holiday, and -- here's the kicker -- can write as well as you board or bike, we want to hear from you. (And unlike that other job, you can't be high all the time).
We're looking for year-round, part-time (a few hours a week) help from passionate, experienced freelancers who can bring energy and ideas to Westword.com. If that's you, e-mail a résumé, writing samples and three ideas for recurring features to Joe Tone, web editor, at email@example.com. No phone calls, please.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
