Effective immediately, Curbed SF is seeking a freelance contributor to write 3-5 blog posts on a weekly basis. We're looking for some combination of urban planning nerd, cranespotter, and San Francisco news junkie to help us track neighborhood happenings and the many new developments going up around town. Research chops help a lot—if you find yourself searching through Planning docs just to see what's going on, let's talk—but we can also teach you those things if you're the curious sort by nature. If you find yourself scoping out construction sites or gaping at high-rises while everyone else hurries past, do read on.
Writing experience is certainly a plus, but we're most interested in folks who share our obsession with the city and want to help us document the changes happening all around. Are you a journalism student or recent grad with an abiding interest in planning or real estate? Do you have architecture, planning, or development chops and you've always wished someone would hand you a megaphone? Send an email to email@example.com with a paragraph about yourself, a paragraph about why you'd like the gig, and anything else you think would grab our interest (past writing experience, perhaps—and/or links to your blog, clips, or Twitter account). Put "SF freelance contributor" in the subject line. No resumes, please. If we're into it, we'll respond quickly with more details. (If you're employed in the real estate industry, alas, we can't use you. But we still love you.) Thank you!
