Web superhero seeks part-time sidekicks to fight crimes of the heart for fun and clips!
Us: Venerable, award-winning website about love, and/or lack thereof, geared for both men and women and combining witty advice with sophisticated superhero comic-strip adventures. Our likes include: snappy dialogue, Rachel Maddow, Evil Willow (as played by Good Willow), hairpin turns of phrase, detectives, print, lime green, Rosalind Russell, X-ray insight, Wonderfalls, clean copy, the heart of the matter, matters of the heart. We’re continuing to build out our relatively new blog component, and we are seeking a few new sidekicks to join our existing super-bloggers for help with additional content: posts, Tweets, maybe more.
You: Ace reporter, crackerjack writer. Able to spot relationship-related news stories and the clever or insightful angle therein. You should have your own distinct voice and take, but should also be willing to roll with us in terms of style and philosophy. We may also want you to help track and moderate blog comments when necessary, and possibly, if you’re up for it, to curate new editorial features. Swinging geeky is good; affinity for superheroes a plus.
Pay: Alas, none. This is a very part-time (part-part-time?) pursuit in which you may engage from the privacy of your own home/cafe/McJob. While we are exacting in terms of quality, we flexible and understanding in terms of time commitment.
Payoff: Honing of your voice and your nose for news. Tons of [short] clips. Some cachet / street cred. The opportunity to become part of a tight, fun team who will give you impressive references. And, possibly, your very own cartoon alter ego.
If you are interested, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with a cover letter, resume, and writing sample(s). Hot tip: Make sure your cover letter shows that you’ve spent time familiarizing yourself with the website. If you don’t happen to have writing samples about BG-related topics, that’s fine; we just need to see good writing and that virtual sparkle in your eye.
