Looking for a San Francisco based writer with photog skills to cover San Francisco news.
Content: Home Security, Crime, Safety, and Related Technology such as Home Automation
Mood: Youthful, Fun, Clever
Frequency: One article every three weeks.
Beyond being a writer, you will be the local expert. The site will focus on local crime, security, and safety information. You can also write about related topics, such as local home automation or local technology companies creating smart home or home security tech. You will be responsible for contributing one unique and locally focused story every three weeks. The articles should be unique and contain information that only you, as a local, would understand. For example, when covering BART’s investment in security cameras (which everyone is doing), you might contribute an article that talks about what they could do to improve the system beyond buying security cameras. Take a concept, show a deeper level of thought, but make the story fun and approachable. You will also be responsible for contributing one high-quality original photograph per article where applicable – though stock photos are occasionally okay too. In the BART example, a cool original photo of a train or a station would be perfect. This role might also expand into video. While you don’t need great equipment, you will need a decent camera for pictures and video.
Finally, you may need to call out to local companies and experts to get original information and insider scoop. What do you think? Can you handle it?
