Full Time Job
SPIN is seeking a Staff Writer to begin immediately.
The role includes writing daily for the site--news, reviews, reported blogs, etc--and contributing to larger staff projects and initiatives. Applicants should understand Spin's brand and vision--strong reporting instincts, a sense of humor/irreverence, and an eye for ''the story behind the story'' are key to the overall tone of the site. Additionally, staff writers are encouraged to write profiles, reported features, and essays, and will be given the opportunity to develop a recurring written or video series they will ''own'' for the site.
The ideal candidate for this position:
• Has one or more years of experience writing for a music publication
• Reliable and deadline-oriented
• Pitches easily and takes edits in stride, understands the taste of the site
• Can blog quickly and cleanly and is eager to report as needed
• Enjoys working with a team
• Loves music and thinking critically about culture and entertainment
