Flickering Myth is always keen to expand our writing team with talented contributors who have an interest in film, TV, comic books, video games and pop culture.
Please note that at present our staff positions filled and we only have freelance posts available. Unfortunately our current freelance budget is extremely limited and as such, remuneration for freelance contributions essentially amounts to little more than a token payment (while it’s technically not unpaid, it may as well be). If and when this changes, we’ll update this post, but please be aware of this fact before contacting us.
What We’re Looking For
We’re happy for our contributors to write across any areas on the site, but at present we’re particularly keen to expand on the following areas:
– News – Movie and TV news pieces with a particular emphasis on pop culture, mainstream and genre cinema/television.
– Features – List-based content, opinion pieces and other long-form feature content relating to pop culture, mainstream and genre cinema/television, video games and retrogaming.
– Video Game Reviews – Reviews for new video game titles, which will be supplied to writers, along with retrogaming reviews.
– Comic Book Reviews – Reviews of current comic book titles which will be supplied to writers.
– Video Content
What Skills and Experience Do I Need?
No experience is necessary, although we would expect a good level of spelling and grammar, as well as a genuine interest, knowledge and passion for your chosen area. Familiarity with WordPress is beneficial, but again not essential.
We’re basically looking for reliable people who deliver what they promise, and in a timely manner. And if you’re not a regular reader of Flickering Myth, please take a moment to browse through our site and familiarise yourself with our content and our voice.
Sounds Good – What Next?
If this sounds appealing and you’d like to apply to join our writing team, drop us an email with a brief summary of any experience you may have, the areas you’d be interested in covering, and your availability to contribute.
Be sure to include a writing sample from your specific area (a news story, a review etc.), or links to work previously published online, and please only get in touch if you’re serious about your application.
