The Riverfront Times has a summer opening for a freelance editor to assist with its online food coverage and overall web presence. The position is temporary -- we're looking for someone to help out for approximately six weeks from mid-July to late August to cover an editor's maternity leave.
The ideal candidate will be a strong writer and quick editor who knows how to craft a story that will pop online. He or she should have some familiarity with St. Louis' food and cocktail scene, be comfortable using Facebook and Twitter and be prepared to learn the paper's incredibly clunky blogging software. The ability to take your own photographs, upload them, and crop them is essential.
This position is part-time, with flexible hours -- although preference will be given to candidates with availability from 8 to 10 a.m. You'd be welcome to work out of our office in the Delmar Loop or in your home.
