About the Jackson Hole News&Guide: Our vision is to be catalysts for an engaged and inspired community, providing timely, relevant news and insight, and creating opportunities to connect members of the community. The paper of record for this internationally known tourism destination, the News&Guide reports exclusively on the civic, social and creative life of Teton County, Wyoming. Governmental issues here can be complex and contentious, often pitting private property rights against the health and welfare of the wildlife and wildlands of this environmental wonderland. Coverage of these issues demands the ability to translate the technical discussion of governmental boards into on-the-street examples of how actions may affect residents. The News&Guide has a long reputation of producing excellent community journalism, and of mentoring excellent young journalists committed to the profession. 

About Jackson Hole, Wyoming: Home to Grand Teton National Park and the southern gateway to Yellowstone National Park, Jackson Hole is legendary for its high mountain environment, wildlife, snowy winters and lively cultural scene. Surrounded by the southern reaches of the 22 million-acre Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, it is an important hub in one of the last truly wild expanses in the United States. As such, many eyes are on the region, paying close attention to the tensions between the efforts to preserve and protect the natural splendor of the area and the pressures of a rising population and still-expanding tourism trade. 

Submit cover letter, resume, references and 7 to 10 clips/writing samples ASAP via email to Managing Editor Rebecca Huntington at [email protected].
