We write about equity, development, city and state politics, climate, schools, local history, town-gown relations, food and drink, music, the arts, and more. Charlottesville is a historic city facing a complicated set of cultural and political problems as it grows—it might feel like a small town, but there’s always something happening.

C-VILLE is an equal opportunity employer. We aim to deliver high-quality, trustworthy writing about Charlottesville, and an inclusive and diverse workplace is essential to that mission. We’re committed to fostering a team that reflects the community we report on, and creating a work environment that is rewarding for people of all backgrounds.
