      Regarding the recent update   07/20/2017

      As you may be aware, the forum software underwent an update that turned out to be somewhat buggy. We rolled back the update for now, and will plan on making a more smooth transition later on in the future. In the meantime, you may notice the forum loading slowly as a lot of processes are running right now. We ask for your continued patience, and apologize for any inconvenience.

Be a guest writer for YouChew!


TheOneManBoxOffice
  • Are you an aspiring writer with a topic to share or a story to tell? Here's how!

DRWcgfr.png

As members of YouChew's Writing Staff, we love to write articles tackling different subjects on the site, and we love to see what you think about our pieces. However, because of stuff happening in real life, such as school, work, etc., we cannot always post back-to-back articles. This is where you come in, where you can have the opportunity to write a guest article for the site, and everyone on the forum is eligible! So here's how you can become a guest writer.

It'll be similar to how we accept applications for new members on the staff. Simply put, you just write a review, essay, analysis, interview, or a nonfiction story, and send it to one of the Writing Staff members via PM. Mind you, it can be about anything, whether it's about movies, games, music, etc. Our only requirements are that they should be of length, longer than that of a standard blog post (at least 1000 words minimum) and that there is little to no grammatical errors (though minor ones we can correct or let slide). We then look over the post and decide whether or not to schedule a date to post. It's that simple!

If your piece is applicable, it will be shown on the site for all to see, and you will also get the Front Page Contributor medal (4fdMm3i.gif) as a bonus! So, if you're interested (and we hope you are) and want your story to be seen on the site for all to see, feel free to share it with us! We look forward to seeing what you can do!

Happy writing!

- The YouChew Writing Staff

Nor can I. Also, if anyone has any questions, let any of us know.

I don't think I'm good at writing articles, but I might give this a shot.

By the way, when's the deadline?

Just before the idea was announced, I've been discussing with Bio about interviewing Nikky Smeddley, the original actress of Laa Laa from Teletubbies, in commemoration of the show's 20th anniversary. Now that I've found the perfect opportunity to work on my article, I am, without a doubt, more than happy to start work on my interview especially for this event. :)

No deadline as far as I know.

I'm tempted to apply but considering some of my posts in the past that may have been a bit controversial I don't think I'd be fitting for such a position.

My story is too short for this, I'm cry.

It's not really a permanent position on the Writing Staff, it's just a chance for people to offer freelance articles at their own leisure. If you're concerned about generating controversy, you could always review movies, video games, music, and so forth. Those kinds of articles tend not to generate heated arguments around here.

Well, I was thinking about writing an article about weird ass guns in video games on my blog here on youchew at some point...

That being said, if you genuinely are interested in being a more permanent member of sorts, you could contact either myself, Nozdordamu, or TheOneManBoxOffice about setting an interview up (especially if you provided a very good piece there) and we might make a decision from it there. Otherwise, like what was mentioned earlier, this is more for wanting an opportunity to freelance an article to us without any problems at hand. I say show us what you got for any article ideas in mind, and we'll go from there.

So I approached Nikky Smedley regarding the interview via an email request I sent yesterday. She got back in touch with me earlier on and said that she would be more than happy to spare some time answering my questions!! As for when she'll be able to answer them, she'll be on holiday between April 25th and May 11th, but told me anytime after then would be fine. :D

We never did get that second rewrite from your application, mate. You’ve left us in limbo for so long, I assumed you lost interest.

Huh? I thought I told somebody ONCE TOLD ME , maybe Ben, that I wasn't going to do it since I seemed to get stuck and then got busy. Sorry about that!

Who would I send an article to if I did write one? And does the format matter? For instance, do I only send it in .txt or .doc, etc?

You're best off sending it to Crazy Luigi, TOMBO, or Nozdordomu. For the file format, you could send a Word file if you wanted, but you're probably better off typing it up with the Private Message system for simplicity.

Yeah, it's best to just PM your article to either CL, Noz, or myself.

Okay... but what does that have to do with writing an article? Unless you're suggesting you want to write it?
