The Point Reyes Light is seeking a reporter to join our small brick-and-mortar newsroom in Inverness. We are a family-owned, weekly print newspaper covering the environmental, agricultural, cultural and civic life of coastal Marin’s dozen rural communities. We are looking for a core team member with excellent research and writing skills, the ability to tackle complex government policy issues, verve, resilience, and a willingness to work hard. Spanish language fluency is a plus. Our reporters write at least two stories and a few shorts each week—roughly 2,400 words—in hard news and features, following New York Times style guidelines. They meet tight rolling deadlines, attend regular community and government meetings, proofread, represent a historical newspaper with professionalism and care, and assist in weekly newspaper deliveries. Newsroom experience is required. Applicants must own a car and be able to relocate to West Marin. Please send a resume, references, a cover letter and at least four clips to Tess Elliott at 

The Light is also looking to expand its network of freelance reporters. Are you interested in coastal Marin, its stories and our work? Please send a resume, references, a cover letter and several clips to Tess Elliott at
