    TAR VALON TIMES STAFF

    This is a six-month staff position within the Department of Marketing. In this position you will create content for the Tar Valon Times. This content can come in a variety of formats, such as articles, regular columns, or art, limited only by your own creativity and the rules and regulations of TarValon.Net. As a staff member, you can both take on articles suggested by the TVT Editor and Assistant Editor, and come up with your own ideas. The Tar Valon Times offers a supportive environment in which to develop your own creativity.

    Job Specifics
    • Actively search for and share ideas that will be interesting and informative for TarValon.Net members. Articles can cover topics from the Wheel of Time, the Tar Valon community, reviews (books, TV shows, games, comics, films), or anything else you wish to write about, as long as it would be interesting to the membership in general. Unconventional ideas are quite welcome!
    • Contribute a minimum of 3 pieces of content during the term, or maintain a regular column for the duration.
    • Adhere to set deadlines, and communicate with the Editor and/or Assistant Editor if something occurs to prevent publication of your content.
    • Communicate regularly with the Editor and Assistant Editor regarding your work, their work, and anything that comes up during the course of your job.
    Qualifications
    • Anyone of any rank or position may apply; there is no membership time limit.
    • Facility with your chosen medium is a must; for example, if you write, you need to be able to do so clearly in English. Creative flair and a joy for writing and/or creating art are definitely awesome additions.
    • Experience with writing and/or creating art is a plus but not required.
    • Ability to dedicate the necessary time to complete your contributions to the TVT is mandatory.

    Regarding the sample: Any sample which shows a proficient command of the English language in a writing situation or your creative abilities in another medium (like art) may be submitted. This could be an excerpt or a full article/paper, an essay you've written for school, art you have created, or projects you have worked on.

    The writing sample may be attached as a .doc, .txt or .pdf file, uploaded online with link provided, or just copied and pasted into your email at the bottom. A graphical sample may be emailed as an attachment, or you may supply a link to where it is hosted online.

    How to Apply
    Send an email to editor@tarvalon.net, marketing@tarvalon.net and keeper@tarvalon.net with the subject set as "APPLICATION - TVT STAFF - YOURNAMEHERE," detailing why you are qualified, with at least one sample of your work/writing/art and/or creative endeavors. While not a must, I would also like to invite you to include some possible ideas you would like to work on during your term.

    If you have any questions about the position, the department, or other related things, please email marketing@tarvalon.net.


    We will be accepting applications through Sunday
    , November 27, 2016.​

    I'm tempted, buuut... I think I'd be able to dedicate a proper amount of time and attention to this when the next term rolls around. ^^

    Well, even if you only get 2-3 articles in this term that's still 2-3 articles we didn't have before! ^^

    Thank you for the encouragement, but I think I'll feel a lot better and a lot less frazzled once I actually have the time. :$ I've had TVT in my sights for a while now, so I will do it sooner or later. :lol
