Who should apply?
Whether you are an experienced writer or an unpublished aspiring writer, you are welcome to apply. We are looking for two things in your application: 1) a strong passion for writing and 2) raw or developed writing talent.

How to apply?
Submit your CV, three writing samples, and a cover letter or video telling us why you think you’d be the perfect addition to our happy home. If you do not have any writing samples to send us, send only your CV and cover letter and we will send you an application test to complete.
