Mississippi didn't ratify the 13th Amendment until well into the 20th century, and it shows:

ClarionLedger.com is looking for Mississippi’s next great columnist. Those with an interest should know from the start, however, that the position is a labor of love – the perfect hobby for someone who cares deeply about the state and its people and who also has a passion for writing.

This newspaper has a great legacy regarding columnists -- some talented writers who made us laugh, cry and most everything else in between over the years. ClarionLedger.com wants to continue that tradition of launching strong voices by adding a columnist (or columnists, if more than one can grab our attention) to write at least once a week for its online audience.

We’re looking for a talented writer (or writers) with a fair mind and a gripping voice. A social media presence is preferred. Mississippi residence is a necessity.

In return for your hard work we will deliver a one-of-a-kind platform – a seat on the front row of the biggest news forum celebrating the great state that we call home. As a ClarionLedger.com columnist, you can write about whatever comes to your mind. Some areas we hope that hold your interest include: politics, family, leadership, community care and involvement, and education.

This isn’t a first-come, first-serve opportunity where anything goes, however. Even though it is only a labor of love – a featured blogger under the columnist tag on our digital platform – we want a writer who understands the importance of the position and has the writing ability to effectively engage the audience and convey message.

If you think you have what it takes to grace our Web pages each week as a featured columnist blogger for ClarionLedger.com, send along a note on what you have to offer with a writing sample or two to David Magee at dmagee@jackson.gannett.com.

We look forward to hearing from you, and launching Mississippi’s next great columnist.
