Gut Check is Hiring!



Have you been dreaming of a career in the glamorous world of food blogging? Now's your chance! Gut Check currently has several opportunities.

We are seeking freelance writers to assemble and post regular Gut Check features and original, breaking content. Familiarity with blogging software such as Movable Type is a plus. Please note that we are seeking writers -- experience in food writing is not necessary. Love of food, however, is.

Our writers will produce original, recurring content in the vein of our other columns: Chef's Choice, Dinner and a Movie, Drink of the Week, Fight Club Sandwich, Girl Walks into a Bar and Wine Buy the Bottle. Applicants should be familiar with how Gut Check covers food, drink and restaurants in St. Louis -- and should have the confidence and imagination to tell us what our coverage is missing.

For all applicants: Access to a reliable Internet connection as well as the ability to write clean copy and to adhere to deadlines are absolute musts.

Interested? Email me with the subject heading "GUT CHECK FREELANCER." Introduce yourself (a resume is fine but not necessary), tell me why you're interested in writing for Gut Check and attach writing samples. The samples can be pieces you've published or blogged, or it could be an example of the sort of post you would like to write for us.
