Reviewers & Writers Wanted!


Recommended Posts

  • Administrators

As StereoNET has grown, so to have our obligations and demand for covering the latest products, reviews, news and articles on anything HiFi, HeadFi, Home Theatre, Lifestyle and Automation.

 

We're looking to further grow our Editorial Team, and as such we're putting out the call for those that are interested in writing.

 

This is a paying gig - and extensive experience in all things audio-visual, along with an aptitude for writing is essential.

It's not full time, it's not even part time. It's casual, and you can work within your available hours and around existing employment.

 

If this is something that interests you, please contact me directly via PM, with perhaps any links to previous work or writing (even if it's not HiFi related) that we can look at.

 

Looking forward to hearing from you!

I am willing to contribute to the Lifestyle section in regards to whisky reviews. thank you.

I would nominate @@Cafad - he will find it a breeze!

I'll put my hand up if it gives me a chance of securing the next Lavardin that comes your way Marc.

A couple of interested punters already! Great :)

 

I should add, that it would be very beneficial if you know how to reasonably work a camera also.

Looking at that extensive list of contributors already on your team, are you SURE you want to grow it some more Marc?!   :)

 

As part of the grand plan ... yes! I'm committed to growing our database of product reviews, but particularly more opinion pieces and articles.

We want to be regularly publishing interesting and thought provoking content, and generally getting readers excited about our hobby and industry.

 

It's not about quantity, it's about a broad mix and quality writing.

 

@@Yamaha Man - you're in. :)

Fairly wordy.

 

Try to cut a bit of the verbose stuff out, pare it back a bit. : 'PM sent'  perhaps? Short ,concise, to the point.

Says everything it needs too to get it's point across.

Thanks all. Many PMs have come through this evening and this is really encouraging.
I haven't had a chance to respond to all of them so please don't take it personal.
I'll be going through them all tomorrow.

I'm keen to be the Sam Tellig of SNA as it happens. Can you wait a while so that I can befriend someone named Lars? And then wait a bit more until he shuffles off this mortal coil?

I could review GTG's  @@Marc - and food, drink with accommodation at requisite venues as required.

 

And spell check less fortunate souls on hear.  ;)

 

"evil versatile" they call me !  :D

But then you need to find a Russian wife!

How would you go about that?

I'm still working through the "legitimate" interest in this :)

We have appointed our first new contributor to the team today though! )

 

So much interest, and what better way to grow our team than from within the StereoNET community.

Mate i know you got it under control bit here are some tips on how to write good.

1: Avoid alliteration. Always.

2: Prepositions are not words to end sentences with

3: Avoid cliches like the plague. They're old hat.

4: Comparisons are as bad as cliches

5: Be more or less specific

6: Writers should never generalize

SEVEN: Be consistent

8: Dont be redundant; dont use more words than necessary; its highly superfluous

9: Who needs rhetorical questions

10: Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement
