Seeking a writer for a weekly local issues column

The Coast News Group is looking for a new columnist to write a weekly opinion column to run on our Op Ed pages.
We are looking for an opinionated column writer who is immersed in local issues. From hot-button issues to talk around town, as long as it relates to coastal North County, we want to hear about it.
We are only looking for LOCAL writers with opinion writing experience. This is not a reporter position and it is not a business, health, food or otherwise focused column. We are looking for someone with strong opinions about local issues. This columnist would need to have newspaper writing experience and thorough knowledge of AP style and ability to meet weekly deadlines. It would require a weekly submission of 500 to 700 words.
There is so much happening in our coverage areas — from Oceanside through Del Mar and Rancho Santa Fe — and we are looking for just the right person to touch on it all.
If interested, please send two to three writing samples to
No calls, please. We will respond to let you know we received your submission, and will be in touch if we are interested in discussing it further with you.
