Writers Wanted! Join TV Fanatic for the Fall!

at .  Updated at . Comments

TV Fanatic is looking for a handful of Fanatics to come on board, have fun, interact with readers and build their portfolio by doing something you already love to do:

Watch television.

Do you want to write about your favorite shows for a site that garners millions of page views per month? This is your chance.

We're seeking people like these:

  • Do you dream about Empire? Do you imagine yourself cutting videos like the girls on Star? Maybe your pleasures are more simple, like Jane's when she was still a Virgin... Make our home, your home!
  • Gaga for genre shows like Van Helsing? Want to slay blood suckers like those on Z Nation? Spill blood with the guys and gals on Blood Drive? Get it off your chest right here. 
     
  • Maybe comedy is your thing? Do you have something really special to say about Mom? black-ish? Maybe Modern Family? Or Fresh Off the Boat? How about Episodes on Showtime? Laugh with us.
     
  • Are you willing to cover gems undiscovered to you, but of interest to our readers? Web series, the best in streaming? We need you on board.
     
  • Are you always making lists of the best and worst of television? Reasons to watch and remember seminal moments in TV history? Are you dying to relive a show from yesterday? Slideshows might be your thing. Or maybe a rewatch and review because it's new to you. Talk to us about it.

  • A description your past writing experience and why you are interested in this opportunity;
     
  • Where you might fit in the above spectrum of people we're seeking, what you watch now and what new shows you're looking forward to seeing;
     
  • Your technical experience level with CMS products like WordPress or similar programs;
     
  • Thoughts on what sets you apart from other writers, what makes your voice interesting.
