Seeking Food Editor

Maybe you’ve read about Richmond’s food scene in Travel & Leisure or you’ve visited Richmond for a weekend and liked what you saw and ate? Now you can toss your laptop into the ring for Richmond magazine’s food editor position and potentially wind up enjoying what our city has to offer, too — distinct neighborhoods, a thriving arts and music community, easy commutes, and a downtown with Class IV rapids.

Offering the Richmond region timely and thoughtful dining and beverage coverage in print, online and through social media, Richmond magazine wants its next food editor to move deftly between writing short and long, to ably organize and guide freelance writers and reviewers, to have an eye for images and video, to have a strong voice, and to dig deep for stories with diverse perspectives that go far beyond what’s opened and who-has-won-what coverage.

If you’d like to take this on, please send a cover letter, resume, three long feature links, three short online links, your best Instagram post, a short story behind your favorite recipe (with recipe), and three story ideas that you would pursue upon your arrival to Editorial Director Susan Winiecki at susanw [at] richmag [dot] com. Please put “Food Editor Position” in the subject line.
