Set the Table
The jurors of this year's Hunting Prize (or someone in the office) are already gearing up to narrow their over 100 name long "short-list" down to one artist- who will receive the boner-inducing amount of $50,000 for pleasing the aristocrats.
Joan Fabian has been an early victim of the purge, and her story is a doozy!!!
A little James Surls for ya!
Houstonist is looking for writers to help us better keep track of what's happening in Houston. As far as jobs go, being a Houstonist contributor is right up there with working for Google (except without the climbing wall, pool table, lap pool and sand volleyball court) — you get to work on your own schedule, from the comfort of your own home, writing about what you want to write about. There aren't that many qualifications, either: You have to be able to put together a good sentence (several good sentences in a row: even better), you should be able to commit to producing content regularly (weekly is ideal) and you must be an expert on Houston. Whether you're a foodie, a bookie (no, not that kind), a sports fan, a City Hall groupie, an art junkie ... anything goes, as long as it has to do with Our Fair City.
So what are you waiting for? If you're interested in joining us, drop a line to write (at) houstonist (dot) com and tell us a little about yourself and why you think you'd be a good fit with the site. It never hurts to attach a writing sample, too.
If you're still not sure about the whole thing, stop by Brasil between 10:30 a.m. and noon on Saturday, May 3, and hang out with Houstonist. We'll be on the back patio if the weather's nice and inside if it's not — but either way, we'd love for you to get to know us and learn more about being part of the team.
(And no, coming to Brasil isn't a requirement for writing for us.)
