Do you love music? Do you consider yourself "in-the-know" when it comes to the local scene, music history, your favorite genres, or what "the kids" are listening to these days?
Do you find you have a lot of great ideas but not as many places to put them? Like Facebook status updates are an okay platform for your gems of insight, but you're ready to flex your muscles a bit more and really show off your chops? Even better — do you already have some experience writing for a newspaper, magazine, or blog?
Are you generally witty and reliable, with a solid handle on the sort of stuff people want to read about — more specifically, what the people of South Florida want to read about?

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, 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 South Florida with no paywalls.
