The Vermont Standard in beautiful Woodstock, VT is expanding its team of freelance news reporters. We are now accepting applications from locally-based writers who have experience and a passion for telling the stories of local people, organizations and communities.
Assignments may involve covering breaking news, local community events, town meetings or high school sports. Some of these assignments require you to attend events on evenings or weekends. We are looking for talented feature story writers too. Reporting and writing skills, accuracy, attention to detail, dependability and adhering to tight deadlines are all a must. Those who want to embrace multimedia reporting are preferred.
A journalism background is preferred, but it's not mandatory if you've truly got an interest in news that happens in the local communities we serve (a ten-town area). Assignments are made each week and you'll be paid by the assignment weekly.
The Vermont Standard is regarded as one of the best weekly newspapers in New England. This is an opportunity for both veteran reporters as well as talented newcomers to work as much or as little as your schedule allows.
