Do you consider yourself to be a generally funny person? Are you interested in writing for a blog? Would you prefer not to have to run that blog on your own? Epic Slant Press might have a position for you at Clerics Wear Plate! We’re looking for humorist!
Positivity and humor is a key requirement for this project. We’re not looking for people to rant about MMORPGs, developers, or anything of that nature. Satirical ranting is, of course, an exception to the rule! We want upbeat, light-hearted, and generally fun content.
Dedication is our second most important requirement. Epic Slant Press is looking for individuals who are willing and able to consistently come up with content on a timely basis. This arrangement will differ for all writers depending on how much responsibility they wish to take on but a good rule of thumb is one article a week.
Gamers only please. This is an MMORPG humor site and you’ll likely be a hard sell if you don’t play some sort of game! We’ll even take one of those nasty console gamers! Maybe even a Magic player!
Epic Slant Press would, eventually, like to convert all humorist positions into paying positions. Currently that is not the case! All humorists will get a share of any profits that are made by the entire Epic Slant Press network regardless of which division is making money. Profits are currently lower than a gnome monk’s DPS (non-existent).
Network Status by itself does have some rewards. As a “larger” site that is part of a network you’ll have greater access to developers and support from other writers. Multi-writer sites are busier and tend to generate more traffic. You will also be able to advertise your own projects and thus, in theory, generate more traffic for yourself. Epic Slant Press will also offer some financial support to anyone going to a convention/trade show in a capacity that represents the network.
How to Apply
