FictionTalk is Looking for Volunteers



Freelance - Unpaid (volunteer)

Oct 22

This job is no longer accepting applications.

Our website is looking for new contributors and full-time writers with a wide range of interests who want to try their hand at writing about their favorite topics. We are primarily looking for novice journalists who are interested in learning the ropes in a relaxed environment. We offer a stress-free position where you can write at your own pace about pretty much anything you’d like (within reason) and we’ll be more than happy to hold your hand along the way whenever you get stuck.

About Us

Fiction Talk has been around for about three years now and we’ve had our fair share of ups and downs since our inception. Our goal is to provide helpful and interesting content for our readers and we aren’t shy about expressing our personal views in our articles whenever the opportunity presents itself. As a privately-run website, our writers are always free to express themselves as they see fit and we want to offer the same opportunity to anyone interested in joining our team.

What We Can Offer

Like many other small websites, the revenue we generate from ads is less than what we need to cover our hosting fees so we are unable to offer much in the way of compensation at this time. We are expanding, however, and if your content helps us grow faster we will be able to offer you a fair share of the profits in the future. We want Fiction Talk to work as a meritocracy, so perform well and we’ll find ways to reward your work. Aside from promises, though, we can train you to become a good writer and create worthwhile content that people will want to read. Just as important as the writing itself, however, we can also provide you with good news sources and teach you all about good formatting, SEO, using WordPress, and where to look for inspiration when you get stuck.

Our Requirements

Previous writing experience is not required but it certainly wouldn't hurt. Needless to say, it’s important to have a decent grasp of the English language and to be at least somewhat knowledgeable when it comes to the topics you want to write about. We don’t really care about resumes and things like that but we would like to see a sample of your work in order to evaluate your writing skills. Simply write a little something and send it to us at Also, don’t forget to tell us a bit about yourself and why you’re interested in becoming a writer.

P.S. We also try our hand at making YouTube videos on occasion. Let us know if your skills are better suited for video content creation.
