Village Voice Career Opportunities

Founded in 1955 by a small group that included Norman Mailer, The Village Voice was the nation's first alternative newsweekly. Over the years it has been a home to a wide range of writers and artists, from E.E. Cummings and Katherine Anne Porter to Ezra Pound, James Baldwin, photographer Sylvia Plachy, cartoonist Lynda Barry, investigative journalists Wayne Barrett and Tom Robbins, music writer Robert Christgau, and film writer J. Hoberman, among many others. The Voice, which has won three Pulitzers, has always been an aggressive interrogator of the powers that be, as well as a force for finding and promoting cutting edge arts and culture. We believe that both of those functions may be more important now than they have ever been. 

Under new ownership and editorial leadership in 2016, The Village Voice is rededicating itself to being an indispensable resource for progressive New Yorkers of all sorts. This year, the Voice will be unveiling an updated design for the paper, new world-class writing and editing talent, and a state of the art digital platform. Our current portfolio of products includes the print paper (100,000 circulation and growing), a robust website, independently produced lifestyle events, plus many specialty inserts focused on arts, food, fashion, culture, music, and more. We consider that to be just the beginning for this global brand.
