It seems like you’ve found a few articles worth reading.

If you want us to keep doing what we do, we’d love it if you’d consider subscribing. We’re a tiny operation, so every subscription really makes a difference.

We’re looking for a freelance reporter to write one article a week for us, focused on food in the city.

Somebody eager to do thoughtful on-the-ground reporting in Dublin, rather than reviews or single-person interviews. An ability to come up with fresh ideas of what to cover is also key. Reliability is important.

We’re looking for someone who wants to explore the full potential of this beat.

That partly entails reporting on places to eat that readers may want to check out. But we’re looking for somebody to dig deeper into the city’s food systems, to look at green-washing and sustainability, affordability, restaurants and cafes as workplaces, and food cultures.

We currently pay €165 for each reported freelance piece that we publish. Regular freelancers, those contributing more than 20 pieces a year, are also invited to join our quarterly internal co-op meetings, with a say in the business side of the newspaper and how we develop and grow, and setting wages and fees.

If you’re interested, please send an email by 22 February at 5.30pm to lois@dublininquirer.com, telling us why you would be a good fit, with two story ideas, and two writing samples.
