The Cordova Times seeks skilled news freelancer

Phones ringing every few minutes. Rushing to get a comment from the town hotshot. Notebooks cluttering every inch of your desk.

Well, it won’t be exactly like a scene from “Spotlight” or “Alaska Daily,” but we still consider each week a thrill.

The Cordova Times is seeking a skilled freelance reporter to focus on hyper-local news coverage coming out of one of Prince William Sound’s most interesting sectors. The newspaper — an Alaska Press Club award-winning publication  established in 1914 — underwent a change in leadership just over nine months ago, and myself and the team are excited to continue growing into a competitive news source.

An ideal candidate for the freelance reporter position will have strong writing and communication skills, good news judgement, and will be able to make and maintain connections in Cordova, even though our newsroom is remote. Any prior reporting and/or photography experience is an added bonus.

To apply for the position please email a resume, one or two writing samples, and a photography portfolio if you have it to [email protected].
