It takes a special kind of person to write for About Regional.
For a start, it helps if you like dogs. Well dogs, cats, horses, alpacas, goats, ducks and chooks. Basically any sort of animal – except snakes. We tend to tolerate snakes rather than like them.
But more importantly, you need to be really well connected. We are not talking Scotty from marketing, or Gina Rinehart, or even Shaynna Blaze from The Block.
By connected, we mean you need to know your community. Like, really know your community. What are issues that matter? Who are the people who make things tick? Who are the local legends that need to be celebrated?
About Regional is an arm of Region Media, the fastest growing source of quality local news and conversation in the Capital region. We believe that good communication is about listening to the people who live in the region we serve, and that passionate debate and deep local knowledge create the best conversations.
Our key commitment is to providing balanced, relevant local content, produced by professional journalists.
As part of our growth, About Regional is looking for more talented journalists and writers to join our team as contributors. If you have something to say, and it’s important to your region, get in touch. Email our content director, Kim Treasure, at [email protected] and join our growing team.
