Job Description:

Are you a political junkie? An authority on Vermont state government and what makes it tick? Do you want to hold those in power accountable?

Award-winning, locally owned Seven Days newspaper is on the hunt for a political columnist or a news reporter to join our state government team. We’re looking for a writer with voice who knows how to develop sources, get the backstory and make it matter to readers who don’t live and breathe the Vermont Statehouse. Your beat could include the governor, legislature, congressional delegation, local government, the media — and anything else you think matters.

If you want to be our next political columnist, let us know how you’d make a weekly column relevant — and appointment reading — in the age of Twitter. Tell us what subjects you’d like to tackle and how you’d make the column your own.

If you’d rather serve as a straight news reporter, tell us what’s missing in Vermont political journalism and how you’d provide it. Let us know how you’d break the next big story and what you’d want to cover outside the Statehouse. 

Either way, send your resume, three clips and a cover letter to

Seven Days is an equal opportunity employer.
