Freelance News Reporter
Tri-Town News is looking for a freelance reporter!
The appropriate candidate must have strong writing skills, flexible hours, weekend availability and a willingness to get out in front of people to ask questions, take pictures and get information. A bachelor’s degree in a writing-related field such as journalism or literature is strongly preferred, though not a requirement. Reliable transportation and a willingness to travel around the tri-town area (throughout areas of Delaware, Chenango, Otsego and Broome counties) are a must; mileage will be provided. Payment is on a per-story, per-photo basis. Depending on the number of assignments, this position could mean anywhere from 5-10 hours per week.
For the right person, this could be an exciting, interesting opportunity to learn more about the goings on in the tri-town community, bolster writing skills and establish a publication credit.
Please submit a resume with past work experience and a writing sample to firstname.lastname@example.org.
