Find out how to join the team!
411 is looking for new writers for our Wrestling section! If you love Wrestling and love to write, we want you on our team. Your writing needs to be spelling and grammar checked, be easy to read, and be well organized. It takes time (often a lot of time) and work (often a lot of work). We take this very seriously and so should you. Don't apply unless you are serious and plan to stick around.
We also require images in columns, video if possible (embedding videos from YouTube or similar places would be fine), formatting to keep the column organized, (bold, italics, underlines, larger font for headers/titles/subtitles, colored font, and so on), avoiding "walls of text" by breaking up long columns with section headers, and, if possible, smaller sections to go with a main op-ed piece.
PLEASE DO NOT APPLY UNLESS YOU ARE READY TO TAKE ON A WEEKLY COMMITMENT TO COMPLETING YOUR COLUMN/REPORT/ARTICLE!!
Please include a sample of the work you would be offering to 411mania.
We're ONLY looking for…
News Report Columnists: We want to add a few new news report columnists. News reports consist of the author's thoughts and analysis of the latest news items, as well as other sections where the author is free to be creative and talk about whatever he wants. For an example of a Wrestling news report column, check out News From Cook's Corner.
TNA Power Rankings: The TNA Power Rankings would be a companion column to the existing WWE RPI Rankings column. As the author, it will be up to you to decide on what criteria you use to determine your rankings. For an example of the TNA Power Rankings, check out Jack McGee's TNA Power Rankings.
The Wrestling 8 Ball: We are looking for a fresh take on the wrestling list column, which is the Wrestling 8 Ball Column. The author will have control over what they write about each and every week, with the only real requirements being that the column runs every week, you use basic formatting and that the column is about wrestling. You can check out an example of the Wrestling 8 Ball right here!
Writing for 411 is a fun experience! If you want to be part of the team, please send a sample of your wrestling writing here.
