Media Organization: Cannabis Wire
Cannabis Wire, which provides smart coverage of the billion dollar cannabis industry, is relaunching on the Civil platform as part of the first fleet of newsrooms (who have come from OpenCongress.org, New Yorker, The Guardian, BBC, Gawker, DNAinfo, and BuzzFeed News, among others). More here: https://news.joincivil.com/cannabis-wire/
Responsibilities: 3-5 original, reported pieces on the cannabis industry per week; build sources and a beat; report scoops; submit work by deadlines; have a strong sense of curiosity; communicate any and all conflicts of interest.
This is a position where there is room to grow, both on the beat, and professionally at Cannabis Wire. We're especially eager to work with someone who is excited by the position and can cultivate (...no pun intended) their slice of the cannabis beat.
To apply, send a few paragraphs about yourself, why you're a great fit, and how you can contribute a diverse voice to cannabis journalism; please include areas of the cannabis industry that you are particularly well-positioned to cover, a resume or LinkedIn profile link, and three clips that are most representative of your work to: firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, April 17.
(We're interviewing on a rolling basis, so you're encouraged to apply early!)
