Ladies, the time has come. Remember all those times you just-kidding-but-not-really said that the only thing you cared about was your sorority? Well, you’re in luck. There are now some openings in one of the few jobs in the country that can truly reflect that. We’re looking for contributing TSM writers. With the launch of our new, beautiful, fabulous, HOTTEST WEBSITE EVER, we need some new talent to up the ante.
Here’s how it works.
How to apply:
Just send an email with a resume, and an original writing sample to Veronica@grandex.co (that’s .co, not .com). Tips for your writing sample:
1. It should be funny. I don’t care much about the award-winning research paper you wrote on serial killers and their relationships with their mothers. (Actually, I do. Send me that paper. It won’t help you become a writer, here, but I’d like to read it anyway.)
2. It should be well-written. Knowing the difference between “your” and “you’re” does not a good writer make. There’s also “its” and “it’s” — “affect” and “effect” — “who” and “whom.” That’s right, ladies, “who” and “whom.” More importantly, there’s also making a sentence sound good. There’s spellcheck for the rest.
3. It should be an original piece of content. We will not be publishing content that has been published elsewhere, even if you wrote it. We definitely will not be publishing content that’s been published elsewhere if you didn’t write it.
Who can apply?
Anyone who can write in a way that is funny for women. Sorority girls? Check. Men who understand girl brain and like advising women? Check. The sassy gay bestie who pretends to be in your sorority because he likes being the stand-in date for whomever doesn’t have a formal date? Double-check. (Not kidding — we’d love a sassy gay man to contribute. WHERE ARE YOU, SASSY GBF?)
What should I write about?
Whatever you’d like, girlfran. If it’s funny, interesting, or relevant to college-aged females, we want it. If you’re selected as a contributor, your news stories and columns will be approved by the TSM staff, but what you write is up to you. We’re happy to help guide our freelancers, and help come up with an angle we think our audience will appreciate, but we try not to infringe too much upon your creative freedom.
How does this benefit you?
Umm. Fame? Fortune? The opportunity to become the voice of your generation? Well, a voice of your generation.
For real, though. Hundreds of thousands of people are already reading Total Sorority Move each day. Technically, it’s only a week and a half old. How’s that for girl power? Thousands and thousands of people will read your writing, and the Twitter following is not a bad deal. Plus, after a probationary period, there is an opportunity for compensation. (Cash money. But not cash. Direct deposit.) The going rate is $15 per news story and $25 per column so long as you meet your minimums which will be determined once you’re selected as a contributor. That’s money for dues, your bar tab, or the new bag you don’t want to tell Daddy about — and all you have to do is be your lovely, funny self.
If you are interested in applying to be a TSM contributor, email a resume, a writing sample, and whatever else you’d like us to know to Veronica@grandex.co.
Maybe you can sit with us.
