Around this time last year, I posted a Call for Contributors here at Manga Bookshelf, which resulted in the creation of a slew of great new columns, some of which are still going strong and some of which have faded away, as these things sometimes do. So here I am, a year later, making a fresh call!
Got a great idea for a weekly or monthly column? Send us your pitch! Contact us with the following:
Also seeking 1-2 writers interested in accepting regular news/interview assignments. To apply: same as above.
Your pitch should include a theme for your column, a general outline for the column’s inaugural entry, how often you’d write it (weekly or monthly), and how you envision maintaining its theme over time. If your idea is a one-shot or short series of posts, please indicate that as well. We are particularly interested in columns that offer something different than what we do now. Areas of particular interest include Korean manhwa, anime (especially something other than straight-out reviews), fandom, and industry news, but all creative ideas are welcome! We’d also be open to expanding into video or audio features. Please allow at least four weeks for a response.
At this time, we are unable to offer monetary compensation for contributors, but we look forward to doing so in the future.
