Writing Positions Available
At the moment I’m looking for people to fill two different writing positions -
Columnist – You Are A Story Teller
Ozemag is about explaining your creative journey from the ground up. It’s about how you got your big break and what steps you took to get there. Who influenced you and your career? How can you help other aspiring actors by sharing your amazing creative journey? In general, helping transform our acting community to a more professional standard.
If you’re currently on a journey and are willing to share the details on a regular basis, you are a solid writer, or you’re good with video or podcasting, the columnist position may just be for you.
I’m looking for people who are serious about spreading the dream and contributing to the ideals of Ozemag, not just looking for self-promotion to push your agenda.
Reviewer – You Live And Breathe Film, Television and Theatre – NO VACANCIES AT PRESENT
New movies and shows are released every week and I’d love to review them all so we can help you decide on what is worth seeing. But I can’t do it alone!
I need your help to review them by attending the show or movie and then writing a solid review of it and being completely honest with your opinion and recommendation.
I have a formula for writing good reviews, which you will have access to if you qualify for this position. You will also receive free copies of the products and of course, if you make any money testing the product it’s all yours to keep. If you prove a good and consistent review writer you will be paid either a per review fee, or a split of any affiliate commissions earned from sales made as a result of your reviews.
Please only apply for this position if you absolutely LOVE films, television and theatre as you will have to be very active with your eyes glued to the screen or stage. You should also have a good general knowledge of the entertainment industry in Australia and the U.S. including who’s who. I.e. actors, writers and directors that directly make up and affect the acting community so you can cross compare people and previous projects and write with confidence that you know what you are talking about.
Reviews should be concise and to the point – a maximum of 500 words, preferably with pictures.
How To Apply
If any of this sounds appealing to you then please get in touch.
What I want to see is samples of your writing or videos or podcasts. I’m after people who match the Ozemag style – down to earth, good story tellers, practical teachers and a from-the-heart authenticity that comes through your writing.
Send me links to your previous work, I’ll take a look and then let you know if I think you would be a good fit. If so, you begin a trial period by submitting some original work over a period of a month, at least one article per week to demonstrate your consistent high quality output.
If you have any questions, please ask when you apply.
