New Times is seeking a freelance arts writer to contribute a weekly column about the arts scene in Broward County and to write for special issues like our annual Arts & Eats guide and Best Of Broward-Palm Beach edition.
Ideally, applicants will be familiar with the county's longtime arts institutions (Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, Broward Center for the Performing Arts, the Improv) as well as up-and-coming or off-the-beaten-path venues (FAT Village, Makers Square, etc.). Candidates should be able to turn out fun and engaging stories, have some knowledge of significant local artists, and be able to put art-world developments into context.
The job requires visiting exhibitions, interviewing artists, and generally knowing what's up.
It's possible that two or more freelancers could rotate columns.
The pay is meager, but the glory is great.
Interested parties, please email a résumé, cover letter, and clips of published work to Managing Editor [email protected].
