Forumula1.com, a leading authority on Formula One and home to one of the biggest F1 discussion forums, is recruiting!
We are looking for two interns or staff writers to contribute to and manage our news site as we expand our coverage during the 2009 Formula One season.
We also plan to launch a series of sister/sub-sites which will cover other major motorsport categories such as World Rally, so Formula One doesn’t have to be your only interest.
Although the internships are unpaid, this would be an ideal opportunity for a budding writer or journalism student looking to build their portfolio and get their foot in the door.
If you are interested in this opportunity, please send a covering letter / email and an example of your written work to email@example.com. We regret that we may not be able to reply to all applications.
The closing date for applications is 5 January, but please be aware that we may recruit before then.
In addition, we always have an open door to writers wishing to contribute on a more ad hoc basis – just send us your stories!
There is no expectation regarding the level of contribution made by our authors/journalists – as long as the article is accurate, well-written, does not infringe copyright and is unique to Forumula1.com.
However, given that site revenue is shared out to our authors on the basis of their contribution (i.e. clicks on adverts on their own articles), the larger the number of articles written for the site (and the bigger the draw), the more money they make.
In return for such payments, as with other media, the content will remain the property of Forumula1.com and associated properties.
