    I know we've had a few things about two other gigs (SE and copy/design) on here that were also posted recently, but I'm curious about the writing gig specifically.

    Perhaps Birdcribe should PM me. ;-)

    I know that this opened up because the previous writer is moving to NorCal for a job that pays 12 Gees more a year. Cant remember which paper exactly, but I stink it was McClatchy.

    Who's the writer? Where is he going?

    Sean Lynch. As I wrote, I dont recall the paper he's going to next, but he'll be doing preps there too.

    Haven't met Sean, but he's a decent writer.

    Always improving, always composed, Lynch is the good kind of "a decent writer." The young kind.

    So what's the story here? Is it completely a preps job? Does it involve covering 12-year-old soccer?

    How big is the paper? And didn't they just have both of these openings a couple of months ago?

    I applied for this, but I don't think I'll even get a shot since I live all the way across the country.

    I would love to go back out there, but I don't want to go out unless I KNOW I'll be granted an interview. I don't want to spend jack or time out there if I know that it's not worth going.

    They've already started interviews for this one.

    Hopefully if that's the case, Tierra, they've already gotten close to ENDING interviews for the SE gig. Cart before the horse, you know.

    I haven't talked to my people there in more than a week.
