Magnae Famae wants more volunteer writers, as we continue to expand. We are looking for you to help us out!
We are looking for intelligent, talented volunteer writers to join our team. We are looking specifically for these positions:
*Updated on June 6th, 2012, to add an Olympic Coverage Team*
POP CULTURE WRITERS
We need some Pop Culture writers! Now, more specifically, you can choose what you want to cover.
- The Hunger Games
It’s up to you, which you want to apply for.
To apply, email us at email@example.com, tell us about yourself, and come up with a Pop Culture/Entertainment article.
Opinions matter! They are great for sparking conversation, in the comments. So, we want a few writers to write about one article a week containing their opinion on a current event.
To apply, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us about yourself, and include an opinion piece!
WORLD NEWS WRITERS
We really need some Political, Science, and Current Events writers here at Magnae Famae! You can write about anything, so long as it is appropriate for most audiences, and is news!
To apply, email us at email@example.com and tell us about yourself, and include a piece on a current event. For this position, your articles can be as long, or as short as they need to be, so long as they get the full story.
Interested in Tech? iPads? TVs? Then maybe you should start writing about Technology. You can have a column about Apple or Microsoft, or even just report the daily news. This is wide open.
To apply, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, tell us about yourself and include a tech piece.
We are going to need some editors, to proofread, and verify the facts. We really need trustworthy people here. Our editors will decide whether the article should be re-written, thrown out or published. Our editors (and only our editors) will have access to the big blue Publish button.
We really need a team of editors. Don’t worry, the work will be spread out equally between existing editors and new editors. We are also putting together a guide for our editors to use as well.
To apply, email us at email@example.com and tell us about yourself, and tell us about any experiences you have, and why you should be chosen (PROOFREAD!)
OLYMPIC COVERAGE TEAM
We are looking to start a temporary Olympic Coverage team of at least two people, but no more than seven people. The team would cover everything from sporting events, to the technology behind the games, to effect on the London economy. This truly is a topic that anyone can cover.
The team would be working from now until the end of August (to do reviews and such).
Here are some of the positions we would like to fill. (If you would be interested in doing multiple positions, that’s great!
- Ceremony Coverage Person
- This person would be doing a live blog, interacting with other people outside of Magnae Famae
- This person would be doing reviews of the Opening and Closing Ceremonies
- Sport Coverage Team
- This team will cover sports. Both live, and afterwards.
- This team will do daily reviews of the day (providing scores and anything interesting that happens)
- This team will cover the medal ceremonies.
We can’t wait to go through those applications. Don’t forget to tell us which position you would like.
This is great work for resumes, and it’s a lot of fun! (People are really impressed when they find out you run a website).
If anyone came to mind while you were reading this, please forward this article to them!
