Paid positions open: Webcomic reviewer, Promoter
I’m looking for assistants who are either able to produce fresh content of high quality for our websites (Sandra and Woo and Gaia) or able to do some promotional work for our comics. For a start, I’m looking for people able to fill the following two positions. You must be a native speaker of English and have good writing skills for both. The ability to deliver good work by working on your own without constant supervision is very important! I will pay with PayPal.
Your task is to regularly write detailed reviews of other fantasy webcomics which will then be published on our website. I have written a review guideline that outlines how your review should look like. If you are interested in this position, please have a look at this guideline now! Beyond that, I’m fond of the review style seen in the discontinued webcomic review blog Webcomic Overlook.
I want to make one thing clear: I’m looking for a webcomic critic, not a webcomic fan! The quality of webcomic reviews is often poor. I want to publish good ones!
If you think that this is something for you, please send your application to firstname.lastname@example.org. Of course it would be good if you could include an example of a similar text written by you. Please also give me your estimated charge per review. I already have a payment amount in mind, but I would like to see first if it’s way too high or low based on the applications I receive.
TV Tropes article improver
Do you know one of our two comics almost as well as I do? On top of that, are you somewhat familiar with TV Tropes? Then you could help us by expanding the articles on our comics: Sandra and Woo at TV Tropes, Gaia at TV Tropes. Of course always within the terms of TV Tropes.
Things that can be improved:
- Add missing links to the discussed strips, characters or story arcs.
- Add relevant new tropes. (Sandra and Woo already has a lot of listed tropes, but Gaia has very few.)
- Improve the quality of the wording so that it’s fun to read the article.
- Add mentions of our comic on the associated tropes pages.
I thought about paying by the hour since I have no idea how to measure the complexity of the added “chunks of information” without making a science out of it. So I will probably try out several applicants for an hour or so each and then continue to work with the ones who delivered the best work. So please include your hourly rate in your application to email@example.com.
Depending on the number of applications I will receive, don’t expect any kind of answer before Monday next week.
