Coast Weekend hiring freelancers

Features Editor Erick Bengel

Coast Weekend is hiring freelancers to write one to three stories per month and help paint the arts-and-entertainment landscape of the Columbia-Pacific region.

We’re looking for writers who can blend dispassionate reporting with a lively feature style to produce stories that are tight, clean and colorful. Let us know if you prefer to craft a story over several weeks and if you are available to turn around a story in a few days.

Selected applicants will get experience interviewing sources, gathering information, working with an editor, generating clippings and having a byline.

Though Coast Weekend focuses primarily on previewing events (rather than covering them), many stories also highlight interesting personalities and ongoing projects, such as art exhibitions.

Please send work samples to (Submissions should not have been significantly worked over by an editor beforehand.)
