We're Looking For Talented Freelance Food Writers

  • Seeking food writers less annoying than Amy Adams in Julie & Julia.

SF Weekly seeks San Francisco-based freelance writers to help cover the city's incredibly diverse food scene for our print edition and food blog, SFoodie.

We will pay you money -- more like beer money than rent money, but still -- to eat and drink things around town, interview chefs, dig up food news, write previews for events, review local products, and generally tell our readers what's worth knowing about in the San Francisco culinary scene and what's not.

We want writers with a strong voice, a rich vocabulary, and a hatred of clichés, and who are unafraid to come out and say if something sucks. We also want you to have experience writing for a publication -- professional experience, ideally, although talented college paper staffers and food bloggers are encouraged to apply. At SF Weekly, you will be expected to turn in clean, well-written copy on time and without fuss.

If you're up for the adventure of covering food for SF Weekly, send a brief bio, resume, three published examples of your food writing, and a list of three dishes you love in town to Anna [dot] Roth [at] SFWeekly [dot] com. It would make our lives easier if you used "SFoodie writer application" as the subject line.

If we're interested, we will contact you. Please understand that we're often writing on deadline, buried in email, out at a restaurant, or otherwise unable to respond with the timeliness you might like. If you're a good match, you'll hear from us.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
