New Contributors Wanted: 2018

Nerds of a Feather, Flock Together is looking for 1-2 awesome individuals to join our team of regular contributors! 

Duties: posting approximately once every other week, though the exact number will fluctuate. We would like one contributor to focus on reviewing new science fiction and fantasy novels and the other to focus on short SF/F. Both contributors are also free to write about cult films, TV, comics, video games or related commentary on geek culture. Candidates must be willing to engage with our readers on twitter and other social media platforms. 

Benefits: free books and the potential for other free stuff, as well as joining a dynamic team of enthusiastic nerd bloggers at this here little Hugo-nominated fanzine.

Who we’re looking for: we are looking for people who (a) write well and don't need extensive copyediting, (b) appreciate our brand of humor, (c) understand and are ready to abide by our established format and scoring system and (d) are otherwise good fits with our voice and style. We are not, however, looking for automatons who agree with the rest of us on anything and everything.

We would also like to note that one of our goals is to feature a diverse range of voices on the topics that matter to us. As such, we encourage writers of all backgrounds to apply.  

Caveat: we know lots of you have awesome projects you want everyone to know about, but since these are regular contributor positions, we would like to emphasize that this would not be an appropriate forum to use for promoting that awesomeness (aside from your blogging awesomeness, of course).  

Process: send an email to nerdsfeather dot the g at gmail dot com telling us what you are interested in doing and why you'd like to join our team. Please also send a writing sample, which can be either embedded into the body of the email or links to published work. We will try to respond to everyone as quickly as possible. 

We look forward to hearing from you!
