Since 2009, Girl Meets Food has grown from small food blog to award-winning website on dining, entertainment and lifestyle in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
Widely known for its clever, tongue-in-cheek and offbeat humor, Girl Meets Food has been a valuable source of information to Washingtonians when it comes to food and drink. Not only is working for us fun (we’re pretty awesome) it’s a great way to gain valuable experience and exposure. Girl Meets Food is looking for:
Food Writers (Washington, DC and New York City)
Here’s what we’re looking for:
- Good spelling and grammar. Though we edit everything that gets published, this would make our lives a dream!
- Basic blog software skills. You’ll need a computer, basic word-processing, HTML and image editing skills. If you have these skills already, awesome. If not, we’ll teach you!
- Independent, and proactive person, who is able to write on her own
- Unique ideas and information. Girl Meets Food tries to set itself apart from the crowd by providing fresh, interesting content. We’re looking for writers with a unique perspective about food culture and a sense of humor!
- Long-term commitment. Like Hotel California, you can check out anytime you like, but you can’t never leave (cue guitar solo).
- Excellent photography skills.
We’re looking for anything food-related that’s unique–local, regional and international cuisines, travel, cultural diversity, food history, interviews, high-quality photo essays, videos and recipes. If you’re a big foodie, you’ll love the many opportunities to interview chefs, restaurateurs and other industry professionals; and attend food-related and press events!
In return you’ll get full credit on each piece you write, plus an author by-line and photo. Please note, each piece written for Girl Meets Food must not be published elsewhere using exact words and photos. Girl Meets Food retains original copyrights to any work you write for us.
