CONTRA COSTA COUNTY, CA (August 30, 2023) — Can you write? Love the news?

The Concord Clayton Pioneer newspaper is looking for an experienced reporter/feature writer with a lively and sophisticated style. You will help cover Concord, Clayton and Pleasant Hill news, events and people. This is a free-lance spot for a monthly PRINT (yes, I said PRINT) newspaper. It typically requires one or two stories per issue. See what we do at

If you have at least a passing acquaintance with the AP Style Guide, are computer savvy, available to cover evening and weekend events and are competent with a camera, we need to talk. (A sense of humor is crucial for maintaining sanity.)

Email a brief of your background, your contact information and a writing sample (one news story and one feature article) to
