SPIN is seeking a daily news writer to join our New York City team.
Daily news writing duties include aggregating stories suitable for SPIN, blogging quickly and neatly, lending a compelling SPIN voice to news, and working to ensure the site’s on top of the 24/7 news cycle. We’re looking for a candidate to work five full days a week, including weekend hours (e.g. Wednesday-Sunday or Saturday-Wednesday, with flexibility concerning weekday shifts). Candidates should be self-starters capable of publishing and socializing posts when needed.
The news writer will also have the opportunity to pitch and contribute to other sections of the site as desired, including reviews, features, lists, interviews, and more.
To apply, please send a résumé, links to four to six different published music-related clips (including news, blog posts, and more), a cover letter explaining why the position interests you and why you’re right for the gig, and a list of your five favorite albums and five favorite songs from 2015 to email@example.com. The deadline to apply is January 8.
