Evanston Now plans to expand its coverage of the community this year and has openings for two freelance reporters.

We’re looking for experienced writers with a strong interest in at least one of several topic areas and a willingness to cover stories outside their primary interest area as needed.

Topic areas we’re interested in include business, courts, entertainment and schools — but we’re open to hearing from folks with other interests as well — as long as they are focused on what’s happening in Evanston.

These are part-time, paid, independent-contractor positions.

We have a strong preference for Evanston residents who are already familiar with the community.

To apply, please send a resume with a note describing your interests by email to No phone calls, please.

Bill Smith is the editor and publisher of Evanston Now.

  1. Thanks for bucking the trend!

    I appreciate Evanston Now's commitment to increase local coverage while several other news outlets are moving in the opposite direction. Your in-depth coverage of our community is why your business is growing and theirs is declining.
