We know D.C. Get our free newsletter to stay in the know.

Y&H is seeking freelance contributors with an eye for restaurant and bar trends and solid reporting chops. (A personal blog chronicling your latest meal doesn’t count.)

If you’re thinking, “How about a round-up of the best outdoor patios in D.C.?” this gig probably isn’t for you. We’re looking for people who can cover the quirks of the local dining scene and news without relying on press releases. We’re interested in food and drinks, yes, but also exploring the business and culture of the industry. We don’t usually hand out assignments, so you must be able to generate your own story ideas.

Interested? Please email jsidman@washingtoncitypaper.com with a short blurb about yourself and your writing experience plus a story pitch.
