Hiring Writers For WWENews.net

Shares 0

We are again hiring for our sister site WWENews.net!

In the past year, our writers have covered a wide range of WWE topics - Wrestling With Motherhood, WWE Network: The Dawning of a New Age, and Replacing Rey Mysterio.

I'm very proud of the writing on the site, and how we've grown over the past year. Because of this we are seeking a couple more motivated individuals interested in posting opinion-based pieces completely related to WWE. News may be incorporated in your opinion, but this will not be a place to post news. WWENews already carries news headlines, results and spoilers from WNW. What we're looking for are pieces on particular wrestlers, angles, reactions to big news, etc. This is your chance to start discussions in the internet wrestling community in a clear and articulate fashion.

No prior writing experience is required, but you have to be willing to submit at least two pieces per week and be able to provide quality content. This is a non-paying position, however, you will receive the following compensation for your work:

1) A free WNW Premium account – after a proving period
2) An opportunity to have your articles read by thousands, including WWE talent

WWENews.net shares all of WNW's social media accounts and your material will get read. This is a perfect opportunity to gain experience, get a free Premium Account, and a strong line for your resume.

If you are interested, please send the following to Kendra (I'll be fielding applications and doing the hiring) at [email protected]:

  • Your name
  • Your age
  • When you are able & how often you watch WWE
  • A sample of your work

We aren't going to hire kids, so you need to be of an age where you are mature enough to handle the position. I'm not putting a cut off on ages as a couple of our writers are younger, but I'd like to say 16. There have been exceptions, and if you really feel you have what it takes, please apply, you never know what might happen.

The sample is the most important part of your application. I don't expect you to hammer out a 1000 word article, but give me a couple paragraphs so I can evaluate your writing abilities and knowledge of the product. This isn't amateur hour and there is a certain level of quality we expect, though you should be familiar with this through visiting our sites.

Again, please send the above material to Kendra Bunyon at [email protected]. I will do my best to field any questions anyone has in the comment area below, or through email. Serious applicants only and please realize we are only looking for those that intend to write on a consistent basis.

  • David Jr.

    I’ve been watching wrestling, my entire life, hmm should I apply?

  • jason witten 82

    A free subscription and 75k a year and ill do it Richy 🙂

  • Phillip Phillips

    You lost me at non paying.

  • jamiewelton

    I’d encourage any of you thinking of applying to do it. I write content there twice a week and it’s really enjoyable and rewarding. If you see a piece of news you have a strong opinion about or just have an opinion on something you saw on WWE programming you have a place to finally voice your thoughts. Good luck to all those who apply.

  • Alex Gallardo

    A free WNW premium account?
    Oh, you have to actually write articles to get it?

  • David

    So you are giving $72 as compensation, but If someone works in an article for 1 hour and you are asking for 2 each week, considering $10 as what you should honestly pay, then the possible writer is not being payed at least $960 per year.

  • Venom

    It’s too bad. It seems like a fun thing considering that I write paragraphs in opinions on the comment boards but non paying is a tough one. A 1 year subscription isn’t going to put food on the table!

    • Michael Antonió

      The money you would spend on the subscrioption, can go towwards food lol

  • Mysterion

    Off topic, but who’s the tool going round every article just thumbs downing everything? :-S

    • Alex Gallardo

      Who cares about downvotes?
      Besides, just mentioning downvotes will get you downvotes.

      • jason witten 82

        Lol couldn’t agree more

        • Alex Gallardo

          And look at my comment
          I mentioned the downvotes
          I got one
          That’s why it’s best to just ignore them.

      • Mysterion

        I dunno. Call it OCD style. It just bugs me that such an immature trolling method is being utilised.

      • Michael Antonió

        I think it’s funny that someone downvoted that after you said it lol I was the upvote though lol

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Sadly, there is no real way to track that. Just have to hope the troll leaves.

      • Venom

        I think Richard would know since he can delete comments on here. Besides, you have to be a registered user to downvote something. You can’t downvote of your a guest, I tried.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I actually asked about this about 6 months ago when we had something similar happen and was told that while Disqus will show upvotes and keep track of them, it does not log IPs of downvotes or usernames to protect against indiscriminate bans or flame wars between users. In looking through the control panel myself, I have found no way to track it either.

          • Venom

            Oh, I see.

  • The Breaker

    Maybe I will, but I’m not 100% certain I’d always meet the two per week requirement. Not that two is a lot or anything, but I know myself and once I get started on writing, it takes a little while before I’m satisfied with it enough to call it finished.

    • I hope you know that I’d love to have you. Shoot me an email.

  • I’m applying. It might be fun to do. I tried to write a couple paragraphs and ended up writing a 1100 word article for my sample piece. LOL. good luck to those that apply.

  • Dave
