Canopy Atlanta is a community-led journalism nonprofit founded in 2020 that equips metro Atlanta residents to access information about their communities, and to tell and share stories that are responsive to community desires.
We’re seeking collaborative journalists, organizers, community leaders, and metro Atlantans to join our staff (see our current team here).
We’re hiring. Atlanta Civic Circle and Canopy Atlanta are teaming up to produce “The Cost of Living,” an investigative reporting and community storytelling project about housing in Atlanta and we’re looking for an editor.
The right person will have a keen eye for seeing the big picture on housing in the metro region. They will have experience working with seasoned and emerging writers, and an ability to inspire and coach while helping to shape storytelling with impact.
With a mix of long-form pieces, short news updates, and in-depth enterprise, the editor will work collaboratively with both newsrooms’ editorial leadership teams to help steer the strategic vision for this project.
To apply, send an email with your resume and several paragraphs outlining: 1.) Why are you interested in the project? and 2.) How would you tell the story of affordable housing differently?
Responses are due Friday, Oct. 7.
