We are looking for reviewers and staff feature writers for the site! If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at writing reviews or blogging about comics, graphic novels, manga or anime AND you are a library worker or on your way to becoming one, we want you.

We are seeking a diverse array of interested writers and reviewers interested in all kinds of comics.  If you’ve applied in the past, please apply again with your updated information and experience.

Please send in your application by Sunday, April 21 at midnight PST.

We will get in touch with all accepted applicants by WEDNESDAY, May 1.

Reviewer Expectations

  • To turn in (at least) one review a month.
  • Select titles for review from our submitted review copies first, then owned/borrowed copies second
  • To help create recommended and/or topical lists
  • To occasionally contribute special features

 

Feature Writer Expectations

  • Coordinate and contribute to (at least) one list per month
  • Work with other staff to create group lists and brainstorm future topics
  • Coordinate and participate in special features including creating core lists, hosting and writing roundtable discussions, or responding to library-specific collection questions

Ask yourself

  • Can you commit to writing one review by the end of each month?
  • Are you prepared to discuss constructive criticism and work with our editors to craft your review?
  • Are you flexible in reviewing different genres and types of titles aimed at different age ranges?

Please understand that we only accept applications from library workers or library school students as a way to keep the perspective of the site consistent and distinct.

We can offer review copies of titles (both in print and in digital formats) and a chance to write for a professionally recognized resource. At this time all positions are volunteer: we cannot offer payment except in the form of the review copies of titles.

If you are interested, please fill out our official application!
