Neowin: Now hiring driven and motivated writers

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

Think you have what it takes?

You can apply by visiting www.neowin.net/contact/apply and following the instructions.

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!

I use to blog a lot on my blog, and I think I'll give this a try, because a lot of people apparently like my writing.

Newly registered user, yet a long-time daily visitor. Love this site.

I'm definitely going to apply tonight after work, or while I lounge at Uni tomorrow.

Any age limit for this?

No age limit as far as I'm aware. (apart from Neowin's standard age limit of 13 to sign up as a member)

Our youngest writer is 15.

Will take a shot at this, applied once via email (I was reading one of the forum threads that said to apply to it) but never got a response.

For the 'New Article' part of the application, I do suggest adding another 2 articles to write from as some may be better at writing lets say a review article than writing an article about an event or something.

Congratulations! You have just, inadvertently removed yourself from the running.
