For all of you who were interested in contributing to a blog, we've got the next step ready!

First, here are the seven categories we'd need contributors for:
  • Humor
  • Literary News
  • Resources - helpful websites, books, articles, etc.
  • Websites - both literary and/or not
  • Tips
  • Prompts - Real prompts, not like "here are this week's 5 random words. Use them in a story!". More like "go for a walk," etc.
  • Literary Terms
Now, if you're a contributor, you'd have to find new content to post about at least once a week. We're thinking about *hiring?* 2 contributors, and each one would have 2 categories that they post about. Each week, you can post in either category, or both, or more than one in both. You get the idea.

So, if you're interested:
  • Tell us why you should be chosen for the blog. List any credentials that you think will help your case.
  • List 2 categories you're interested in, and say why you're a good candidate for them.
  • It would help if you list a 3rd category, too, just in case the two we choose have the same category chosen.
And there you go! Who knows, we might have the blog up and running by New Year's if this works out well.

Hello, my name is Oscar Gutierrez and I would like to hired for the blog because I feel as if I am responsible enough to do what is asked for. I love to write, obviously, and not only feel that I can do this, but really want to do this as well.

If I could I would like to write in the categories of Humor and Tips. For a third choice I guess Prompts might sound interesting. I really want to do Humor since it might help me right better comedy in my novel.


How formal was that *thumbs up*

If anyone is wondering, my boyfriend's internet is the absolute worst piece of shit in existence, and it causes my computer to slow down significantly anytime I enter the Chatroom. It also causes the chatroom to freeze anyway, so it's a bit futile to attempt to log in while I'm at his place.

Do whichever you want. PM me or post it here. It doesn't really matter.

Sure, you can sign up for as many categories as you want. But make sure you indicate which you like most, so we'll be more likely to appoint you to those.

Hello, My name is Kevin Smith and I would enjoy contributing to this blog. I know that I am responsible and disciplined enough to be a contributer. I am on YWO almost every day and perform a fair share of critiques, and my passion for writing is at its highest peek. I am one of the most gifted young writers in my school and area, and I am also in the process of forming a writing club in my highschool. I have the highest grade in my English class, so I wouldn't mind contributing Litery Terms or quotes. Before I got serious about my writing, I studied day in and day out and worked with numerous writing promts, so I would be able to do prompts as well. Last but not least, I've had a good amount of funny experiences and know some pretty funny stories, so humor could aslo be an option.

Sign,


Zaphkiel

I'm not going to bother, 'cos I'd just screw it up in all those categories.

Hi Andy and Shaun,

I would be a good choice for a contributor to the blog because I am on YWO everyday, and I am one of the top poster of the site. I am organized, and I have always finished everything on time. My writing level isn't as high as all the experienced writers on YWO, but it is high enough for me to be a decent contributor to the blog. I'd be interested in contributing t o the Literary News since I enjoy reading and writing about things that happen in the literary world. Also, I'd love to contribute to the Websites category as I have a few interesting sites I'd like to share and I'm sure I could find some more interesting ones. I could contribute to rescources but I am probably not the best personn for that. I hope you give me the chance to contribute to the blog.

Thanks,
Nyx.
