Pro Wrestling Website Hiring Writers and Contributors

Posted by Anthony Mango Saturday, August 31, 2013
Would you like to write for a professional wrestling website? Now is your chance, as Smark Out Moment is officially looking to hire more contributors!

Whether you are an aspiring writer or just a dedicated fan, Smark Out Moment wants you to be able to express your opinions with the rest of the Internet Wrestling Community.

* Keep in mind that you must be able to speak proper English. This means nobody with broken English will be accepted under any circumstances, nor will those who illustrate poor spelling and/or grammar. You could have the best opinions in the world, but you need to be able to communicate those in a professional manner. Being a writer on a site is not the same as posting on a message board, leaving a YouTube comment or sending a text.

* As such, please be prepared to send a writing sample of an article about pro wrestling (not college essays, term papers or anything of that sort).

* Many people have asked if this is still applicable despite being an older post. Take note that Smark Out Moment is always looking for more team members!
 
* Be advised that these positions are currently volunteer-only, not paid writing gigs. That will change in the future, but there is no set time frame of when.

POSITIONS AVAILABLE:
