Neowin: Now hiring driven and motivated writers

Neowin has several news poster positions available. We are primarily looking for writers based in Europe who can submit articles between the hours of 8am and 4pm CET or those in Australia/New Zealand who are able to write during those hours. However, we will of course consider writers based elsewhere too!

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.

We do not assign people to different areas unlike other established news sources. Our writers can choose to 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.

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!

it was a a way of asking what "you" (pointing to him, Owen that is) think...
it's a kind of rhetoric expression. ^^

8am - 4pm is a killer time... That's basically my work time... But I just have 3 days of work left , sent my university applications.

Maybe I should enter, what do you guys think?

Is this pointed to me or to a considering person in general?
Don't get me wrong, I'm happy that you say I should apply, just wondering what Owen Williams thinks of me as a potential Neowin writer?

Which probably won't be discussed publicly, you should ask him via e-mail or PM.

Hmm I'm looking to get into a little journalism and wonder if this would be a great platform for me to test out my skills or lack of skills.

Didn't apply before (about 8 weeks ago), but after the well received review of my phone, I'm definately going to pursue the opportunity this time!

Yes, we bumped the story from 2 days ago, with minor edits.

Don't be surprised if it gets one or two more bumps still.
