L.A. Weekly Seeking Brilliant Film Critic
We're hiring! We're hiring!
Now seeking: the next Roger Ebert
And this might be the coolest job we'll ever post. (Except for, of course, food critic. Or music editor. Or, OK, investigative reporter -- what can we say? We have a lot of awesome jobs around here.)
Anyway. We're looking for a film critic. This person will be based in L.A. (duh) but write movie reviews that run across the Voice Media Group chain -- including the Village Voice, Miami New Times, Westword and the OC Weekly. We're seeking a stylish writer, capable of bringing fresh insight to both obscure films and blockbusters, and an excellent reporter, willing to dig deeply while reporting on the film industry and its luminaries. We're looking for someone who can write long-form stories with the same panache as he or she brings to reviews. Extra credit for writers who can mix it up in blog posts and on social media, too.
If you're interested, please send a cover letter, resume and five samples of recent writing to sfenske[at]laweekly.com.
