    I have to be vague here, but PM me for more information.

    A small award-winning daily in the heart of Virginia (don't worry, not Martinsville) is anticipating an opening for a sports writer to join our three-person staff.

    We cover straight preps and some pagination is involved (usually twice a week).

    Pay is what you expect, but we're on our way up. Won our first APSE ever this past year and have no intentions of that being our last.

    Again, PM me with questions.

    Do you cover gay preps? ;)
    (Not that there's anything wrong with that)

    IF this is what I think it is, it gets the Moddy Seal.
    Not like the boots seal but whatever, eh?

    I think I know what this is too. If it's what I think it is, let's just say it's nicer looking than Martinsville. Which, okay, narrows it down to every town in Virginia not named Franklin, but still.

    Plus, no chance a fictional human resource department apologizing for a sexual harassment meeting.

    I think I have a good idea what paper this is, and if so it is in a really pretty part of the country.

    Well, if they're covering straight preps, it's not likely to get a seal from boots ...

    My clever powers of deduction have already determined the gig.

    Or Emporia, but sometimes the streets of Franklin can resemble Venice. Not many towns in Virginia can claim that. ;D
