Looking for a Few Good Writers

We’re looking for folks to write about DC. Not about the politics, but about the culture, the traffic, the sports, the arts, the life that is DC. Applicants must be willing to write 3 times a week, roughly 200 words per entry or so. While we don’t pay, we will allow anyone to apply for media passes, under our auspices, in the DC area with our blessing and support.

Spend all your time at the 9:30? The Sackler? The Corcoran? The Mayor’s Office? The Metro? Saint-Ex? Tell us about it.

Email a writing sample and biography, and we’ll get to talking.

    Sounds like a great idea if you’re a fame whore. Become blogger, get no pay, metroblogs gets ad revenue. Mouth off, get censored?

    Don’t get me wrong, it might be fun for some people, but some of you all must get paid.

    None of the writers here are getting paid, we all do it for fun.

    Fame whore? I’m supposed to get FAMOUS out of this?!

    Damn, why didn’t anyone tell me? Now I know why all the hotties at the club want to be just like me… I’m Tiffany from Metroblogging DC.

    Yeah, not likely… call it a labor of love instead. ;)

    So I’m the only one who gets to sign autographs? Okay, then.

    I wish I had a life in D.C. — I’d be happy to write about it (for free!), if only I knew what it was! :)

    I don’t live in DC, but visit often (about once every month or so). It’s a great city. Oh well.

    Whores? Not bloody likely… Sounds like a wannabe fame whore who can’t think of anything original to satisfy the fame-whore-bug in him/her.
