Travis has received quite a few emails from those of you responding to his call for new front page contributors last week. Which is awesome! So the next step is determining who will officially join the Canal Street Chronicles team.
That's where you guys come in.
Everyone who responded with an interest in writing for Canal Street Chronicles is now responsible for submitting to Travis a writing sample. Something that shows us all exactly what we can expect from their future work on the blog.
Over the course of time, Travis will post each candidates submission anonymously on the front page and solicit feedback from the community. Whoever receives the overwhelmingly positive support of the CSC community will most likely be given a regular position on the writing staff.
That means this isn't a competition. There aren't a limited number of spots available, nor do we have a quota to fill. Everyone who submits a sample could be asked back for a regular gig or none of them can. Chances are it will be somewhere in the middle. Either way, it depends mostly on you.
Submissions will be posted anonymously so that readers may offer honest feedback but please remember that the authors will most assuredly be reading your comments. So all criticism must be constructive. Keep Da Chronic classy.
If you were hoping to earn a spot writing on the front page of Canal Street Chronicles, you'd better get your article samples submitted soon!
