The Incline and Billy Penn are proud to host a 2018 Report for America corps member.
This reporter will cover the state legislature in Harrisburg and will focus on issues of importance to residents of Pittsburgh and Philadelphia — from abortion laws to education funding, from the environment to the minimum wage. The corps member will also cover the swing state’s midterm elections and contribute to PolitiFact, for which The Incline and Billy Penn are its Pennsylvania partners.
Apply here for Report for America by March 23. Corps members will be selected in April and begin reporting in June.
Here at The Incline, we’re expanding our sports coverage and are looking to hire local freelance writers to cover the city’s professional and college sports teams. This is a pitch-heavy opportunity for Pittsburgh-based writers with interesting ideas and quality stories to tell.
We aren’t looking for beat writers or people who want to be beat writers. Our city already has a bunch of really great beat writers, so adding to that group and telling those same stories over and over again won’t serve our audience. Rather, we want to tell cool stories, and we want to find unique angles to the stories already being told.
Send a cover letter detailing your experience and links to at least three published work samples to email@example.com, subject: “Sports freelance.” More links, professional references and other info are welcome, but only if you think they’ll help.
Spirited Media Inc., The Incline’s parent company, is an equal opportunity employer.
