Journal Scene Communications, publishers of the Goose Creek Gazette, Berkeley Independent and Summerville Journal Scene, has an opening for an independent contractor to write two to three stories per week for publication in the Gazette and the Independent. Qualified applicants must show that they have published work in newspapers or magazines — print or digital.
We are looking for a story-teller who has the skill to interview local people/newsmakers and gather information for credible news with the highest journalistic integrity. Some of your work will be directed by an editor, but most will come from self-generated ideas.
Applicants should have an understanding of AP style and be able to meet assigned deadlines. We are not looking for opinion writers, creative writers or poets. This is not a full-time or part-time job. You will work using your own computer and camera gear. Compensation will be paid per story, based on our standard freelance schedule.
