Job Listing: Temporary Seattle Bike Blog Editor – Part-time for 3 months – CLOSED

UPDATE: Applications are closed.

After more than a decade writing Seattle Bike Blog, it is time for me to take a sabbatical. So I am looking for someone to work part time reporting bicycle and transportation news in the Seattle area and handling other editorial work like moderating comments, posting to social media and maintaining the events calendar.

The pay is $1,100 per month as a baseline for the contract, so that’s roughly 10 hours of work per week on your own schedule. The contract will last three months and starts as soon as is feasible.

Solid understanding of newswriting and reporting standards required. Photojournalists are also encouraged to apply. I will be available to offer advice, contacts and story ideas as needed, but you will need to be self-motivated. As a reporter and editor, you will be encouraged to pursue your own story ideas.

Proficiency in using WordPress a plus, but it’s not necessary. I can teach you. Ability to take usable photos is required, but proficiency in photography is a plus. Basic familiarity with any image editing software also a plus.

Please send your resume, cover letter and three clips to [email protected]. Position is open until filled. I will update this post when submissions are closed.
