The Clinton Courier, a twice-monthly, locally-owned community newspaper with a circulation of 9,000, is accepting resumes for a freelance city beat reporter. Reporting duties may include attendance at civic meetings; covering government, school, community and human interest stories; and limited feature writing. The Clinton Courier considers itself a positive hometown newspaper with a focus on bettering the community we represent, with a mission of providing good news our community can use.

Candidates should have a background in journalism or a related field. Strong emphasis is placed on accuracy; ability to submit stories in AP style with few to no grammatical, spelling or punctuation errors; adherence to deadlines and word count limits; professionalism when representing the paper in person, on the phone or electronically; accessibility for story assignments; and a positive approach to community news. Sports-writing abilities are preferred but not required. No page design, photography or layout experience is necessary; and most work is submitted electronically (i.e. no physical office presence is required). Candidate should be a self-starter, capable of generating story ideas for approval by the editorial staff.
