You mean that priviledged, super-awesome writer position? I do want it!

...I just wouldn't be able to write an article every week D:

It's awaiting the eager!

Honestly, one every week would be awesome, but we are aware it's not entirely viable. One every month is what we/you should aim for :)

Hmm... I'll see what I can do.

I think the articles that are currently up give a nice indicator of what we are looking for.

About how long does it take for an application to get reviewed and accepted or declined?

We normally wait until all of us have seen the application and we have discussed each other's feedback. A few days, usually.

Just a clarification for those who want to apply:

It will definitely help if you give us a thorough application; give us an example of what you have written in the past and write a "demo" article (just a few paragraphs about a topic of choice will do) so we can see your style of writing and whether you make a good fit for the team or not.

As much as we appreciate interest from anyone, there's not much we can do with just a few lines - we genuinely can't get a good impression from that, so unless you have been posting/writing frequently as a member on this site already (and we have noticed it), applications containing of just a few lines will generally be declined.

Also, just to clear up a misunderstanding: as great as it is that people write ES fanfic, this is not what we are after! Fanfic was (and will be) featured on the slider whenever a story makes it to the Spotlight, but from our official writers we expect articles, no fictional stories or biographies.

If we cannot commit to regular articles but have something (a one off) in mind nevertheless, I assume we can still present an article to you guys to be considered?

The thing is, this will highly depend on the quality of what is sent our way. If we feel it will be a tribute to the slider, we will put it up there. What we expect from our writers, though, is consistant writing so the site has a constant, active flow of information that inspires discussion among our members.

One way to put no pressure on yourself nor anyone else, is to simply work on whatever you have in mind and put it in General Discussion. It can always be "elevated" after.

Are you allowed to re-submit an application to be a writer? Or an updated application?

You can, though it has to be drastically different from the former in order for us to suddenly form another opinion.

Would including a practice article be fine or should I add in something else?

We're extremely sad over this, as you all will be, but because of life-turbulence @Kilivin and @BlytheAlarynn will not be on the writing team anymore for TESOF. Please thank them and appreciate them for their amazing articles and dedication, I know I have enjoyed them immensely and their contribution will be irreplacable.

That said, we went from three writers to one, in one week! So if you have ever felt the urge as a Tesofian to contribute to this site, consider posting an application!
