If you’ve got the talent, flair for writing and want to work in DC, send your clips, resume and most innovative web features soonest to Chris Frates cfrates@nationaljournal.com.

One of the biggest requirements: organization and the ability to run the thing on their own. Send your clips, resume and most innovative web features soonest to Chris Frates cfrates@nationaljournal.com.
