Columnist Sought

High Country News is looking for a freelance Washington columnist:

High Country News, a biweekly magazine that covers the politics, environment and culture of the American West, is looking for a Washington correspondent who thinks and reports deeply and opines with flair. This is a unique opportunity for a columnist to reach a growing audience in 11 Western states that will be battlegrounds for the 2008 presidential election. Column format and frequency are negotiable. Column brilliance is not.

Founded 37 years ago, High Country News is read by policymakers, agency officials, journalists and thousands of ‘people who care about the West.’ For its 2006 journalism, HCN won the George Polk Award for Political Reporting, the AAAS Science Journalism Award, and the Walter Sullivan Award for Science Journalism, among many honors.
