Candy Addict Needs Writers!

Candy Addict

If you’ve ever wanted to get paid to write about candy (and get free candy shipped to you to review), now is your chance! Candy Addict is looking for some more writers to add to our staff! We can’t keep up with all the goings-on in the candy world. We need help!

What am I looking for in the ideal Candy Addict writer?

  • A love of candy, obviously
  • Excellent writing skills
  • A sense of humor that comes through in your writing
  • Familiarity with HTML – you don’t have to be an HTML guru, just have some basic knowledge
  • The ability and time to write a minimum of 1-2 or more articles per month for the site
  • Knowledge of WordPress is required.

What will you get out of writing for Candy Addict?

  • Money. Yes, you will be paid for your writing. It’s not enough money to quit your day job, but it’s some extra spending money.
  • Free candy. We get lots of free candy to review – you will be put into the free candy queue and get some too (but you will have to write a review of it)
  • A paid writing gig to put on your resume.
  • No hard deadlines. Write when you can.
  • World-wide fame and notoriety. (Ok, I lied about the last one, but all the others are 100% true)

If interested, send me an email at REMOVED with the subject of WRITER: YOURNAME (obviously, replace YOURNAME with your name) before midnight EST on May 29 (I may close the door before then if I get a lot of emails, so email sooner rather than later). If you don’t use that subject in the email, it will get filtered to the trash, so make sure you get it right.

In the email, include some samples of your writings about candy or your writings on any topic (or URLs to your writing) and tell me why you want to be a writer for Candy Addict. Impress me in the email – it’s your only chance to make a first impression. If I like what I read, we’ll proceed to the next interview phase and I will give you more details on the job and answer questions you might have.

If you want to be a writer that gets free candy samples to review, you must live in the U.S. If you are outside the U.S., you can still write for us and get paid (in U.S. dollars), but you would get no free candy from the U.S. (but I might be able to arrange free candy from candy companies in your country).

Now’s your chance – send that email!

UPDATE: I’m going to stop accepting applications at midnight EST, Tuesday May 29, 2007.

    Brian, I heartily encourage you to consider my candy prose as evidenced on my blog. I may be an incipient candy author, but I’m truly passionate about all thinks sweet, sticky and snacky.

    Plus – I think I could take some really cool macro photos!

    Thanks, Brian, and I’ll be reading in any case!
