Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

By now you've read that disloyal ladder climber Jason Sheehan is leaving Westword for the grayer pastures of Seattle, which -- shhhhhhh -- he actually thinks is a borough of New York. We didn't have the heart to tell him it's just a wetter, NBA-less version of Denver.

Kidding! We're gonna miss him, and we're jealous Seattle gets to read him every week day. But all tear-infused kvetching aside, we need someone to fill his lobster miso- and Jameson-stained shoes. Read the help-wanted ad after the jump.

Westword has an immediate opening for an experienced food critic/blogger to cover Denver's restaurants. We want a stylish, opinionated writer who can produce a weekly review for print and multiple daily posts for the Cafe Society blog. The ideal candidate will be part of the alt-weekly readership and have professional kitchen experience &/or education. This is a fulltime, salaried staff position with benefits. Interested and qualified applicants should send cover letter, résumé, and clips or a sample review to: Cafereviewer@westword.com

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.
