Coming Soon: Streetsblog California

3:49 PM PST on February 13, 2015

Following the launch of Streetsblog in Texas, Ohio, Saint Louis, and the Southeast, we have more good news to bring. Starting in early April, Streetsblog will launch its newest news site, Streetsblog California.

SBCA will feature Melanie Curry’s coverage of policy issues in Sacramento and around the state and some of the work being done in Los Angeles and San Francisco. The site will also feature writing by a network of reporters throughout the state in areas that don’t have a Streetsblog.

As part of the grant from The California Endowment that will allow us to launch the new Streetsblog, we’ll be hiring a writer in Fresno to cover the Livable Streets beat in the Central and San Joaquin Valleys.

We’ll have a lot more news on the site as it develops. In the meantime, check out and share the job announcement for the Fresno writer after the jump.

Part-Time Writer for Streetsblog California

Job Description

We are looking for a professional journalist for a part-time position based in Fresno or elsewhere in the Central Valley to be a local correspondent for Streetsblog California. The position will be expected to provide regular coverage of local transportation projects including but not limited to bicycle and pedestrian planning, transit service, high speed rail, urban planning, and other issues.

Responsibilities

The main responsibility will be to develop and report on the Livable Streets beat. While the position starts as a part-time position, we are working on bringing in more funding to expand the position and hope to work with the writer to bring on more funders and more advertisers, and perhaps grow it to a full-time position sometime in the future.

But the main responsibility of the writer is to write for Streetsblog. The writer should produce between six and ten Streetsblog-quality stories every month.

Qualifications

The winning applicant will have a history and track record of publishing high-quality news articles and have a working knowledge of the culture, politics, history, and urban design of Fresno and the Central Valley.

How to Apply

Send an email to damien@streetsblog.org with a resume, writing sample, and cover letter.
