ROBOT 6 is expanding its team of writers with the addition of two paid positions:
Daily contributorWe’re looking for a writer with a mastery of link-fu who obsessively scans RSS feeds between message-board visits to help us cover comics. The ideal candidate is as comfortable unraveling the plot points of the latest X-Men event as you are explaining the details of the newest Dark Horse digital initiative. What’s more, you can contribute two posts per day, Monday through Friday, without breaking a sweat. Familiarity with WordPress is a plus; fluency in comics is a must.
Writer-at-largeIf you can write passionately and persuasively about a range of comics-related topics, from creator rights and convention wars to reboots and crossovers, we want to hear from you. We’re looking for a writer with a distinctive voice and an ability to respond quickly to developing news to contribute one to two opinion pieces a week. Some days publisher announcements or fan reactions will make your topics clear; other days you’ll be igniting the discussion. Again, familiarity with WordPress is a plus; fluency in comics is a must.
Send links to a half-dozen examples of your work to Kevin Melrose, ROBOT 6’s managing editor. Be sure to specify which position you’re applying for in the subject line.
