Jobs: Write for Neowin

This spring, Neowin has several news poster positions available. If you have a passion for writing informative and inspiring news articles, Neowin might be the right place for you.

What are our expectations?

  • Be active: We require no less than 4 articles a week, but the more the better. We pay our writers per original article depending on the comments/hits. This won't replace your full time job, but is an easy way to earn extra cash for an MP3 player or copy of Windows 7.
  • We expect all articles to be originally written, we have strict guidelines for approvals. You must be proficient in English and grammar. We understand no one is perfect, but we do have high standards in order for a post to be approved on the main page.
  • You need to be able to bite your tongue when negative criticism occurs. It happens from time to time, but remember you represent Neowin on and off this site.
  • Although not mandatory, living near a convention/tech hotspot such as LA, Seattle, New York, or Tokyo would be a plus.

We do not assign people to different areas unlike other established news sources. Our writers will write from a variety of different categories.

Here's a general idea of what we cover here at Neowin:

  • Microsoft
  • Apple
  • Linux
  • Gaming
  • Software
  • Hardware
  • Gadgets
  • Mobile Devices
  • Editorials & Reviews
  • And anything else that's related to technology

If you feel you have what it takes to be a news reporter here at Neowin please send an application with the following:

  • Your forum name (if applicable)
  • Your full name
  • Your location
  • Your previous blog you have wrote for, paid or unpaid (If applicable)
  • A sample of your writing, preferably an article with at least 220 words

All applications should be sent to editors AT neowin.net. Please note that due to the volume of applications we receive, we may not be able to reply to you instantly. Please give us at least a week to reply to you.

Thanks and Good luck!

Where's the money mugsy?

You get money per comment, it said. So you should write articles which are sure to get people mad and arguing with each other. In fact, most Neowin readers do that quite well without encouragement.

bring it on, fanboy.

I like writing, not sure if I can write at least 4 articles a week though. Not to mention I don't have any contacts as a new writer would have to come up with interesting enough articles for this site. Shame though. Cool offer though, nice pocket change for someone who can use it and can do the work.

So Apple and Jobs Inc owns Neowin now? Really? Normally I wouldnt care but seeing as Android and Apple are BIG topics for a while...seems "funny" that Android was left out of what Neowin covers.

And yes, Android is covered under mobile devices...but so is Apple and MS as well as hardware/software

I think i'll apply but with an "enterprise" twist.. i'd love to write about everything from small business on up to enterprise/cloud computing and datacenter technologies focused on microsoft/wintel platforms and alike. i don't see much of that here.. would neowin be intersted or is it more keen on sticking to gadgety tidbits?

I thought alike, too.

I think it should be "Hiring: "


Shhh: Neowin wants to increase the amount of people reading this by using such a title!
