About the job

The Lawrence Journal-World is seeking a journalist to join its team of reporters.
Qualifications include a curiosity about a wide range of topics, a desire to help residents better understand their community, and a commitment to accuracy and fairness. Our media organization covers a variety of beats in Lawrence and the surrounding area. While we have a particular need for a higher education reporter who can cover the University of Kansas, and who also has a good eye for features, we want to hear from any journalist who has a desire to be part of the Lawrence community.
The successful applicant will have experience and training in journalism, but the position is suitable for journalists seeking their first full-time employment. Experienced journalists also are encouraged to apply. Applicants should have examples of published work to share and should be prepared to take a writing test, upon request.
The Journal-World operates the leading media website in our area and also publishes an award-winning daily newspaper. Between the two platforms, we serve more than 25,000 readers daily.
Applications must include a resume and three writing samples. Send to Managing Editor Kim Callahan at
