It was a few months ago when Chuck P. (or whomever writes for him) on Twitter asked for writing samples for a potential job for writing for what would become this fine site we are all on now. I sent in an essay, and checked my e-mail every seventeen seconds for weeks for something that basically said, 'you're hired'. Alas, the e-mail never came. My essay was about the first novel I wrote, and how much I hated it, and that I was now working on a second one, but it felt like my first novel, because I felt like I was writing, instead of...I don't know. Point it, I was curious if other people (I'm sure there are) sent in essays, and what they were about.
i didnt apply. i could be writing here, though. really, i just dont want that responsibility on top of college. when im done, i might appy.
There will probably be many fun stories to come out of this but you can find out about the people who joined our team right here http://litreactor.com/about/team
We ended up getting around 500 people who were interested and it took Dennis and Josh a long time to get through, as I'm sure you can imagine.
I actually applied for this too, I think. It may have been an opening at the cult though.
I believe I sent in a resume and a short story about people attending my funeral and all the various good and horrible things people would say about me. Damn, that would of been a cool job.
Wow that's quite a large team - or am I just completely ignorant of how a site like this is run? Great job so far, team LR! Congrats to the ones who made it in. And I didn't apply.
...but in all seriousness if there are ever any openings, I'd do it.
You can pay me in free membership and on a good year, maybe a Christmas bonus of Coffee & Jameson.
