Lake Oswego Review / West Linn Tidings
REPORTER NEEDED - HELP US TELL THE LOCAL STORIES!
Do you have a true passion for community journalism? For telling stories that entertain, inform and shine a light on the people, places, events (and sometimes animals, too!). The Lake Oswego Review and West Linn Tidings has an immediate opening for a feature writer whose work will grace our award-winning Neighbors section, our Business and Entertainment pages and our LO Monthly magazine. Your work also will be shared regularly with our 25 sister newspapers in the Pamplin Media Group all across the Portland metro area.
Applicants should have: a bachelor's degree in journalism or related field; some reporting experience at a daily or weekly newspaper; a working knowledge of AP style, grammar and spelling rules; an ability to work well with others in a fast-paced environment and under deadline pressure.
But most importantly, we're looking for a writer who believes -- as we do -- that everyone has a story to tell if you're just willing to listen, and that the best way to find those stories is to engage as deeply as possible in the community you cover.
