Hi, Ron here from You don't read comics.
Thank you for your interest in writing for YDRC. There are a few things to know upfront about the position. First and foremost, it’s an unpaid position. I’m offering you the chance to read a lot of comics for free and practice writing, but that’s all that I can offer. The second thing, each writer is responsible for writing two reviews a week and submitting those reviews before the set deadline. Depending on the position you’re applying for (see positions below), this will likely be Tuesday evening of each week. If that day is never going to work for you, then just know that the deadline isn’t going to change. Also, if things are busy in your life and two reviews a week sounds like a lot then keep that in mind as well before applying, rather than after.
Now, here’s what I need from you! Two review samples. Please do not send me articles that you’ve written as it will only give me an idea of your style of writing and not your review style. If you have a blog or have written for another site previously, then feel free to send links, but just know that you may be asked for a longer review submission if the reviews submitted don't meet, or are not close enough to, the word count . As a note that any reviews written for YDRC need to be exclusive to YDRC .
As for the reviews, we write in long format. I don’t have a word count to give you because it should be about the content. I’m looking for writers whose bare minimum is 500 words or more. Even then, I wouldn't focus on that number if I were you
If you don’t have published reviews, then please write two review submissions for any two comics, anime or manga and send those over. How can you do this? Google Docs, OneDrive, Dropbox, Box, Mega, anything that can cloud host and provide a link that can be sent to the email below. If you submit without supplying samples, you’ll get an email asking for samples. There is no way of getting out of sending samples, just so you know.
.The most important thing to realize and remember is that I'm looking for consistency with reviews and deadlines.
If accepted you'll be privy to loads of FREE comics prior to their release sometimes weeks in advance, and maybe the opportunity to represent us at press events such as comic conventions for FREE. Please include Your favorite Genre and Titles along with submission and forward your reviews to "Ronald.Simmons@youdontreadcomics.com".
Hope to hear from you soon.
