The Ideal Candidate:
- Is a strong, well-rounded writer with an instinct for rhythm and musicality that’s equaled by their ability to apply structures and frameworks to outlining and drafting processes.
- Is a creative researcher, willing to get their hands dirty to excavate the perfect anecdote, but knows their limits and is comfortable reaching out to subject matter experts when outside support is required to obtain the right story or stat.
- Is eager to immerse themselves in Boston’s history, politics, and communities, and to get up to speed quickly on the nuances of municipal governance.
