As most of you are aware, we launched our very own TLC news team in February of this year. This is a second call for applicants to join our team of reporters. Our main focus is to cover and present important news relating to Narnia, C.S. Lewis and other associated matters, but there is also opportunity to research and write opinion pieces and editorials on interesting matters concerning the world of Narnia and Lewis.
Applications may be submitted for full and part time positions (but we are especially looking for additional full-timers). Hour-long meetings are currently held via Google Hangouts (which requires a Google+ account) every 2-3 weeks on a Friday at 11.00 am Pacific. The time can be moved or renegotiated if necessary. Full-timers are expected to attend meetings with pitches (ideas for new articles) as regularly as possible and produce two articles a month. Part-timers have more flexibility though we do encourage them to attend meetings when possible to share in and contribute new ideas. They are expected to write at least one article every three months though more are welcomed.
While no monetary remuneration will be associated with the positions, there are potential perks. You will gain experience coming up with news ideas, writing and working as part of a team. Reporters may have the opportunity to attend events in their local area and to interview actors and other celebrities, whether in person or online. As an official reporter of The Lion’s Call, you may have opportunities to get tickets and attend events as a member of the press rather than just a member of the public, which sometimes results in better or different access, though with the requirement of writing one or more articles. You may also be able to include your experience as a reporter on your resume/CV.
If you are interested in joining our team, please PM Ajnos and specify whether you are interested in a part or full time position. Applications close 31 October 2014. For more information or clarification you can also PM Ajnos or one of our current reporters (Tenethia, Always Narnian or Eriathwen) who can share with you their experiences of being a reporter.
