In case you didn’t know:
Women do write about comics, guys. Seriously, a lot.
Our beat is comics, creators, and geek culture from a feminist perspective. We are committed to intersectionality and internationality (our diverse staff hails from Canada, the UK, Switzerland, Brazil, and the United States). And while we’re an unabashedly feminist, unapologetically ladies-first operation, we have a healthy contingent of cis men reading, as well as women and non-binary folks. We must be doing something right…right?
We are currently seeking:
A talented, driven gamer who loves to write about gaming. The Games section is new to the site and you will be working closely with the Games Editor, Al Rosenberg, and other WWAC writers to deliver gaming news, reviews, and opinions with a feminist focus.
- Strong writing ability (and knowledge of Chicago Manual of Style)
- Knowledge of the gaming community
- A desire to improve writing skills through constructive criticism and dialogue
- Feminist interested in examining race, class, ableism, gender, etc in games and the gaming community
What we expect:
- You are great at responding to emails promptly
- You love gaming (preferably on multiple platforms)
- You can commit to writing at least 2-3 articles a week
What we can offer you:
WWAC is an amazing forum for feminist examination of geek culture. As the Games Section writer you would be a part of a supportive community of women writers who will help you develop your writing ability and build your portfolio.
To make the best decision of your life and apply:
Send the following seven items to email@example.com:
- A few paragraphs about yourself.
- Areas of expertise and levels of expertise. (What genre of games you play, what gaming sites you follow, whether you can help Al figure out how to use her Twitter better, etc.)
- Examples of your writing. This could be your tumblr, writing samples, your blog, posts for other sites, etc. The more the merrier.
- What do you want to write about? Send at least three story ideas.
- What’s your availability?
- What do you hope to get out of writing for WWAC?
- A description of yourself and your flavor of feminism.
