The Atlantic is looking for a versatile journalist to join our growing culture channel. The ideal candidate will be a reporter with a critic’s eye, someone who can both chase down stories and gracefully elucidate significant moments in pop culture. This person will have experience writing quickly and smartly about the arts and entertainment world and will have a keen interest in contributing to the national conversation through news-driven commentary, big-picture analysis, and thoughtful reporting. This position will be best served by a writer who has a few deep knowledge areas, a knack for identifying the bigger pattern behind the day’s story, and an intellectual curiosity about how culture is informing and interacting with the broader world.
This position can be based in New York City, Washington, D.C., or Los Angeles.
