Weekend Blogging Update

Last Saturday and Sunday we held what I called a “Weekend Blogger Party” to give four writers thinking about joining the rotation the opportunity to write a couple of posts and test the waters.

I am pleased to announce that two of them, David Atkins and D.R. Tucker, will be joining the crew the weekend of May 31-June 1. I’m pretty sure we’ll be seeing more from the other two participants in the “party,” Lisa Solod and Chad Stanton, as well. Chad’s already done a Ten Miles Square post.

But because Weekend Bloggers may come and go over time, while the hungry maw of weekend readership is never sated, we’ll maintain our special email address for inquiries by those interested in this sort of gig: wamowebjobs@gmail.com. Please send writing (and especially blogging) samples if you can.

In the mean time, enjoy our new Weekend Bloggers, along with the continued stylings of Martin Longman.

Support Nonprofit Journalism

If you enjoyed this article, consider making a donation to help us produce more like it. The Washington Monthly was founded in 1969 to tell the stories of how government really works—and how to make it work better. Fifty years later, the need for incisive analysis and new, progressive policy ideas is clearer than ever. As a nonprofit, we rely on support from readers like you.
