Talk With Your Mouth Full: Write for LAist (about Food!)

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Unless you are an Olsen twin, chances are you eat. And if you're reading this, chances are even greater that you dig LAist. To top that, we're guessing you probably have opinions about what you like and what you don't like, say maybe in the arena of where you grab some drinks after work with your friends, where you go after seeing a play or movie for late-night noshing, or what of any one of thousands of local eateries you go to for a guaranteed great date, steak, bowl of ramen, or cup of tea.

But have you asked yourself: How can I bring all these worlds into one cohesive unit?

We have the answer: Write for LAist.

We're looking for a few good foodies to come on board to put in their two cents' worth about what's good--or not good--to eat and drink in this town. This means the chance to write restaurant and bar reviews, write ups about food-related events, about the talk of the town regarding chefs and dining establishments, about cooking and recipes, farmer's markets, buying foodstuffs... and anything else you can dream up. Extra super special love to anyone who tends to eat West of the 405 and/or South of the 10.

Is your mouth watering? Well, as an appetizer, take a look at our FAQ page to get the skinny on what writing for LAist is all about. And if you're still hungry, drop us (um, that's me, Lindsay--your Food Editor) a line at lindsayrebecca [at] and we'll talk about the main course.
