Be Part Of The Team!
So, you want to be a Comic Book Therapy contributor, eh? Course you do, you’re only human. Fortunately for you, there’s no better place to be if you’ve got a passion for Comic Books and a nifty way with words. Read on for the no-frills guide to how you can accelerate your journalistic career right up to 88mph…
Read Comic Book Therapy to get a feel for the house style
There’s no way you can produce CBT-tastic work if you don’t know what we sound like, and although we don’t operate a house style as such you can still home in on how we tend to address things.
Comic Book Therapy content is…
We don’t write in an über-pretentious way, we try to be funny, we don’t say things we can’t back up (unless they make us chuckle), we don’t follow the crowd and we are beholden to absolutely no-one. This is properly crucial – nobody’s giving us back-handers or flying us to Vegas, so we write what we want and don’t worry too much about what The Man thinks.
Still reckon you’ve got what it takes? GET IN TOUCH!.
Email us at [email protected] . Please include the following:
• A friendly note telling us why you want to write for CBT
• A sample piece of work
• A couple of pitches for article ideas is always nice
This work sample can be anything you want – a film review, an article, a blog post or something else entirely – and it doesn’t need to be about Comic Books, although that’d be convenient. You can also fling us some ideas for stuff you’d like to write – we’re always in the market for Movie and DVD reviews, although it’s worth checking we haven’t beaten you to the film in question, and if you’ve got an original idea for a feature then we’ll love you forever. If you’re struggling for inspiration, not to worry – why not write about your favourite independent publisher or lay into an artist/writer who makes you squirm?
Spreading the love – What Comic Book Therapy can offer you
Provided you can string a sentence together, we’ll get right back to you and encourage you to whip up some tasty prose for the site – that means you get a profile on our About Us page and we pimp your article out to all the lovely people who follow us on Facebook and Twitter. Hopefully that includes you – if not, why not? – and you can raise the profile of your piece by ReTweeting and cross-posting across whatever social networks, blogs and forums you associate with. But don’t stop there – remember, the bigger Comic Book Therapy gets, the more opportunities to shine! Get all your friends visiting Comic Book Therapy and enjoying our tip-top content, and who knows what might happen?
