We want you, you and, yes, you as well. You in the back? Yes, we want you too!
In other words, Bushwick Daily is expanding and looking for new faces to join our team. Bushwick has been growing a lot and we need help covering all of the awesome things that have been happening in the neighborhood. If you are obsessed with everything Bushwick, have a ton of ideas and are a team player, we want you.
Oh, before you get too excited, we have to be honest: unfortunately at this very moment we are unable to pay contributors. But as a favorite online neighborhood gem, we are putting together a Kickstarter campaign to raise an annual budget to pay our contributors for their amazing work. So stay tuned…
If not $$, then what can we offer? Let’s see… As a Bushwick Daily contributor you will be in the know about everything in the neighborhood before everyone else. You will go on the best adventures of your life covering some incredible events for us. You will be able to directly help someone succeed by writing about them - think local businesses, events, artists, etc. The entire neighborhood (and beyond) will read your words and look at your photos. Currently, we reach 80,000 readers monthly (whoa!) and we’re growing at a crazy pace. We are consistently mentioned and reblogged by publications like NY Times, NY Mag, The L Magazine, Village Voice, NY Post, Gothamist, Brokelyn, Brownstoner, Gizmodo and more! You will also be in a good company of our current contributors whose work has appeared in Time Out NY, Village Voice, VICE, Riot of Perfume, Brokelyn, Hyperallergic, ArtInfo and so on. Oh, and let’s not forget about free press access to the events you have always wanted to attend…and a lot of free food!
Who exactly are we looking for and how does this whole thing work? Read on.
Awesome folks who are really good in writing and/or photography and who are able to contribute at least one story per week should get in touch with us ASAP. We are looking for nice, easygoing, extremely creative individuals who will surprise and challenge us with their ideas.
You will be working closely with the editors Katarina, Sean, Maria and Wesley who will give you plenty of feedback so that you can grow and become even more awesome than you already are. You can pitch stories or pick up an idea from the stacks of announcements we get daily.
We are looking to cover all sorts of topics, and we are very open to cover stuff that might be missing on the site right now. At the moment we are in a desperate need of good art writers!
If this all sounds good to you, please send us a writing sample, a little bit about yourself and indicate what you’re interested in writing about/photographing to bushwickdailyATgmail.com Please don’t send resumes.
