LEO Weekly is looking to hire a versatile journalist who is able to identify, write and assign stories about Louisville KY’s visual arts, music and theater communities. We’re looking for a motivated person who can work both as part of a small team and independently, implementing their vision into LEO Weekly’s arts sections by working with a small staff and a network of freelancers — under the guidance of the senior editors.
This person should be well-versed in the print publication process, have extensive writing experience, and the ability to turn out well-researched trend stories as well as dazzling features. Knowledge of the arts scene is a plus, but, most importantly, we’re looking for someone willing to immerse themselves into one of the nation’s best cultural cities.
—Plan weekly culture content, covering visual arts, music and theater.

—Bachelor’s Degree in journalism, writing or related field.
—Must have authored multiple articles published in print with individual or shared bylines.
—Experience copy editing.
