San Francisco Mag Needs Writers With ‘Big-City’ Reporting Chops

San Francisco Not based in the Bay Area? Not a problem. San Francisco is open to freelance pitches on a wide array of topics, so long as they can still resonate with Bay Area readers.

“It’s big-city journalism on a number of levels. We have in-depth feature reporting on civic issues, social justice, politics and personalities in power positions. Then, we cover the service side: how to live the good life in a vibrant, exciting, constantly changing city. Then there’s our food, style and cultural coverage,” said editor-in-chief Jon Steinberg, an alum of New York magazine’s “Strategist” section.
