Another Open Call

Think you’ve got what it takes to write for Christ and Pop Culture?

If so, we’d love it if you’d send us an email and let us know you’re interested. We’re looking for some new writers who feel confident and excited about writing about the intersection of the Christian faith and pop culture. Here are some things we’re looking for from prospective writers:

  • A commitment to evangelical theology. That is, the inerrancy of scripture, justification by faith alone, original sin, the historicity of the crucifixion and resurrection, among other things.
  • A love (in some sense) for popular culture. That is, a love for the mediums of film, music, television, books, or video games.
  • A reason to take you seriously. We would like those writing to have some experience writing or studying theology/culture/art. We’re pretty lenient about this, but we still need a reason to take you seriously. Make your case.
  • An example of your previous writing about something similar to what you read here. If you have a blog or website, give us the link to it.
  • A committment. We want people who can commit to writing at least once a month (recommended once a week) and stick to it.

Just email us at christandpopculture@gmail.com with information about yourself, a sample of your writing, and some indication about how long you’d like to write for us. Feel free to volunteer to write about one area, such as television, film, literature, sports, technology, or music. We are especially in need of someone who could provide music reviews across several genres.

If you have any further questions, feel free to email or leave a comment.

Oh. And no, we don’t pay.

    So is Carissa the only regular contributor now?

    Maybe you should adopt a model similar to The Escapist, employing four arms of content provision:

    1) A stable of regular contributors (that seems to be the tough part) where only one to three contribute each week.

    2) Solicitation of single articles from non-CAPC people.

    3) The CAPCast.

    4) The mini-feed.

    You could release four or five articles every Monday (mixing sources 1 and 2), then released a CAPCast on Wednesday, and used the minifeed to toss out ideas for discussion on Tuesday and Thursday through Sunday.

    The use of single article solicitation could pad your content and relieve burden from your regular stable. As well, other writers might be more willing to contribute a single article rather than take on the responsibility of regular contribution. After all, there are still living rumours that you are a blognazi. Further, by soliciting single authors, you may be more likely to tap into expertise than with a regular stable (who by their nature almost must tend to post with more breadth than expertise).

    Of course, I don’t know how big your readership is or how many would be interested in penning single articles, so that might not be a realistic approach, but who knows.
