Open Thread: Sheepshead Bites Is Looking For Columnists!


Want to be a local celebrity?

By now you’re all pretty familiar with our fantastic columnists. There’s Allan Rosen, who writes about mass transit in The Commute, and Neil Friedman, musing on politics, media and culture in Between The Lines. Robert Fernandez shows us the Bay’s tastiest dishes in The Bite, while Joseph Reisman saves you money with Telling Tips.

We’re looking to add some fresh faces to this roster with locals looking to make their mark, and express their passion or opinions to neighbors.

Whether you’re an expert or a hobbyist with a wealth of knowledge on a particular topic, or have strong thoughts about this-that-or-the-other, we’re interested in what you have to say.

All we ask is that you’re able to regularly submit columns, whether it’s weekly, bi-weekly or monthly, and are thick-skinned enough to withstand the barbs of some of our more critical commenters.

If you’re ready to be a local celebrity, e-mail nberke [at] sheepsheadbites [dot] com, and let us know what topic you think would make a great column (cooking? bicycling? shopping? politics?), how often you believe you can submit columns and a few sentences about why you think you should be the one to tackle it. No previous writing experience is necessary.

We look forward to hearing from you!
