Xpress wants writers

Spring is nearly upon us, and with it comes a need — at Xpress at least — for some ace freelancers to contribute to the paper’s ongoing Outdoors section and The Dirt, our farming and gardening column, which is slated to return March 5 after a winter slumber.

If you have a knack for writing and an expertise in either outdoor sports and adventure or farming and gardening, please send an e-mail with a writing sample and your qualifications to sections editor Kent Priestley at kpriestley [at] mountainx.com, or send the same to Kent Priestley, c/o Mountain Xpress, P.O. Box 144, Asheville, N.C., 28802

Similar to our other content, both sections are emphatically local in scope, so we’re looking for some good voices from Western North Carolina.

— Kent Priestley, staff writer


Before you comment

The comments section is here to provide a platform for civil dialogue on the issues we face together as a local community. Xpress is committed to offering this platform for all voices, but when the tone of the discussion gets nasty or strays off topic, we believe many people choose not to participate. Xpress editors are determined to moderate comments to ensure a constructive interchange is maintained. All comments judged not to be in keeping with the spirit of civil discourse will be removed and repeat violators will be banned. See here for our terms of service. Thank you for being part of this effort to promote respectful discussion.

    I’ve never been so disappointed as when I eagerly turned to the new column titled “The Dirt” and found out it was actually about dirt.
