The Wall Street Journal is looking for a voracious consumer of popular culture to write a weekly entertainment column.

This column will help readers navigate the explosion of entertainment options by identifying new and culturally significant shows, music and books that are worth our readers' attention.

Tell us why the third season of "Ozark" is the best/worst season yet, whether the critical-darling "Schitt's Creek" really deserves all that Emmy love, and contextualize Beyonce's new visual album on Disney+.

The column should be focused on what's new and trending and important right now, not old or recycled material. Our mission is to translate the zeitgeist for the Journal audience and explain why it matters.

The ideal candidate is someone who has a range of interests in music, television and books and can write with voice and authority. You will report to the Life & Arts coverage chief, Lisa Bannon.

Please click 'APPLY' to upload your résumé, a cover letter explaining how you would approach the column, and examples of your work by Aug. 21.
