Is your favourite genre of film the one that involves zombies, vampires or deranged killers? Do you recognize that Twilight is not horror and “Bella” and “Edward” are a stain on the vampire genre? Well that means you might be a great writer for our site. Did you disagree with everything I just said but still love the horror genre? That means you have independent thought and would still make a great writer for this site.
HorrorMovies.ca one of the leading online genre blogs is once again actively seeking to grow out team of writers. The last time we put out the call Jason McDonald joined our team and has been a huge hit with our readers! Its time however for us to add another name to our team of volunteer bloggers.
We are looking for two particular roles, a day-to-day news contributor, and a features writer. If you read our site and think ‘wow I can do that’ or think that you can help us ‘up our game’ by joining our team we want to hear from you!
Day to Day News Writer
The position of day to day news writer requires 30 minutes to an hour a day to contribute news. You must live and breathe genre news and be capable of contributing daily. You should have some experience blogging either in WordPress or some similar platform.
Key to this role is that you must live and breathe horror. We want somebody who is as passionate as we are and wants to contribute. Although it requires only a small amount of time your contributions to our site will be read by thousands of people and its important to us that you take it seriously.
We are also looking to add a weekend features writer. This role requires one to two updates per week with a particular focus on generating interesting and entertaining top lists as well as contributing editorial content which will make our community, think, debate, disagree, call you an idiot and from time to time laugh in your face.
If you want to engage with like minded genre fans and are brave enough to share your opinion in a community known for its outspoken readers then we want you!
Although both of these positions are volunteer you will be writing for one of the largest and most passionate horror movie sites in the world. We will not pressure you, we will not stress you out and we wont chase you. You will succeed as a writer for our site because you love the genre as much as we do,
If this sounds like you please email firstname.lastname@example.org with what role you are applying for, why you should be chosen and what makes you a great team member. As much as I will do my best to answer all enquiries I can not promise that so don’t be upset if I don’t. If you applied in the past feel free to do so again.
