Do You Have What It Takes To Join The LitReactor News Team?

Join The LitReactor News Team

Are you kind of a big deal? Do you have many leather-bound books, and does your apartment smell of rich mahogany? Then you might have what it takes to join the LitReactor News Team.

Anchorman jokes aside, this is a serious position. Currently, it's unpaid, as our news team is comprised of people who already write monthly columns. News is something everyone pitches in on to fill up the front page each day. Most news posts take about 10-15 minutes to write up, and we look to produce at least three a day (and you'll also have the opportunity to pitch columns).

What we're looking for:

  • Someone with a journalism or blogging background
  • Someone familiar with the publishing industry
  • Someone who can write fast and clean, and doesn't require much proofing.
  • Someone who's passionate about making LitReactor a go-to destination for news about literature

The benefits:

  • Exposure on the main page on the site
  • The opportunity to pitch column ideas (for which you'd be paid)
  • Experience in a blog-writing environment

If you think you have what it takes, please send:

  • An email with a quick intro and resume (embedded in email is fine, it doesn't have to be a full-on fancy-pants resume)
  • Links to other sites you've written for.
  • Attach a sample story, written by you, pulled from today's news, relevant to our audience.

Send all of this to If we like what we see, we'll reply back. Entries without all the requested information will not be considered.

Good night, and good luck.
