- WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR:
We're currently seeking writers to contribute to our website with relevant news, articles, reviews, interviews and other original content.
Topics we cover include: horror, science fiction, fantasy, gaming, comics, true crime, weird history, alternative events, literature, theatre, dark humour, art, and more.
- WHY WORK WITH VAMPIRE SQUID?
We know how difficult it can be to get a paid job as a writer without having enough published work on your CV. We also understand that taking time out to do internships just isn't practical for everyone. Therefore, we like to do things a little differently.
We aim to give our contributors the valuable practical experience they need to develop their writing skills and build a portfolio of published work at their own pace.
We provide ongoing guidance to all of our contributors to help them learn and further their own careers and interests. You'll be taught how to use WordPress and shown how to write, research, format and proofread professionally – in a way that fits your own schedule.
- ABOUT THE ROLE:
This job can be done remotely and flexibly, but we do have expectations that we require our writers to try and meet, such as meeting deadlines and ideally submitting an average of at least 3 news stories per week and 2 features per month.
Writers can also pitch their own ideas for features, reviews and interviews.
Successful applicants should demonstrate strong writing and research skills, though we welcome both seasoned and inexperienced writers to apply!
- HOW TO APPLY:
1. Briefly tell us why you would like to become a contributor
2. Let us know your availability
3. Provide your email address so that we can contact you directly
4. Write your name and "CONTENT WRITER APPLICATION 2018" in the message heading
*Please note, this is an unpaid role and we cannot accept applications from anyone under the age of 18.
