Calling all college students: Have you ever thought it would be fun to be a food writer or restaurant critic? It is! And SF Weekly will help you get your foot in the door and clips under your belt with a summer internship.
As an intern, you'll get to know the S.F. food scene through collecting info, interviewing chefs and food producers, and attending events. You'll also learn how to develop and pitch stories, work under tight deadlines, edit photos, and advance your writing skills -- all items written will be subject to feedback, editing, and rewrites.
Dear would-be food writers and critics: We want you.
SF Weekly is seeking an intern for its food section (Fresh Eats) and this very blog. As an intern, you'll get to know various sectors of the S.F. food scene through collecting info, interviewing chefs and food producers, attending events, and conversing with veteran journalists. You'll also learn our blogging platform and work on various sets of deadlines that will transfer to any publishing job.
Dear food writers: We want you.
SF Weekly is looking for talented, motivated San Francisco-based writers to help cover the city's incredibly diverse food scene for this very 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, report on food news, write previews for events, review local products, and generally tell our readers what's worth knowing about in San Francisco food and what's not.
Today, we here at SFoodie say goodbye to Disqus and hello to Livefyre, the new commenting system for this and all other SF Weekly blogs. Livefyre is pretty cool -- futuristic, even -- so we're excited for you to get acquainted. Here's a rundown of some key features:
Tag your friends on Facebook and Twitter directly through Livefyre to bring them into the conversation (a nifty feature for restaurant and happy hour planning, btw). Livefyre brings comment contributors together and makes our site feel more like a community.
Check out what your friends like on Voice Places and the stories they like on the site without logging into different accounts. We've integrated My Voice Nation and the commenting system so you only need one account to stay up on what's new at SFoodie.
Staying up to the minute has never been easier with real-time updates that let you chime right into the conversation. Email alerts for comment likes and replies, paired with mobile access, make commenting on the go effortless. You'll also be able to follow your favorite writers and topics throughout all Village Voice publications, so you don't have to sift through all the sites.
Don't have a Livefyre account already? Signing up with Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, Google, or your email below is a cinch. Your comments from our old system will automatically roll over into our new one in the next few hours.
Now that we've given you the low-down on Livefyre, be sure to let us know what's working and what's not in our brand new comments section. See you at the bottom of the page!
