What to know about writing for Nerdbot:
If you commit to holding a specialist position for any topic (video games, toys, tv/film), you are expected to write at least two or more pieces per day. Some days it’s more, some days it’s less.
Sometimes we’ll have several breaking news items on top of each other, and we’ll need all hands on deck. Communication with your editors is extremely important, especially when it comes to your availability on a daily basis.
Be prepared to be assigned things that you maybe aren’t that familiar with. It doesn’t happen often as we do try to match the author to the subject, but we’d rather you know that ahead of time.
We have a set of rules and guidelines we expect all writers to follow and abide by. Sure, we have a staff of editors who will be on hand if you ever need help or advice, but please make sure you’re not making more work for them by knowing the basics.
Also, YES, you will be paid for your published articles.
For all positions, we would like you to have have some knowledge of WordPress. But if you don’t, help can always be provided.
If you do not have any previous professional writing experience (i.e. examples of your writing on other websites or similar), you will be asked to write an article from an assigned topic to be considered for publication.
The below are just some types of writing areas we’re looking for.
TV Reviewer – We are looking for unique outlooks and commentary on what’s happening on television. If you absolutely LOVE The CW’s Arrowverse or the newest bingeable series on Netflix, we want YOU to write us reviews.
News Writer – We’re also looking for people to write up news blurbs in a timely manner. For example, if something newsworthy breaks- we’ve got a great track record of getting the stories out quickly and correctly within minutes. This is generally a more involved position, with more chances for daily articles.
Reporter – Help us cover out of state conventions and events. If you are going to something and want to spread the news about the event write about it! We do overall convention reviews as well as panel write ups and event blurbs. Reporters are able to request press passes from the editor after 6 months of steady contribution.
Features Writer – Pitch us a weekly or monthly column. We are ready and willing to expand the features on our site. For example if you would like to help contribute to our “2 Minute History Lesson” surrounding pop culture, we’re interested!
